Should You Include International Bonds in Your Portfolio? by Larry Swedroe at Seeking Alpha
“Vanguard found that with appropriate hedging of currency risk, investment in the broad international bond market can be less volatile than an investment in the broad U.S. bond market.
They also noted that the volatility of currencies can overwhelm any diversification benefit that international bonds may bring to a diversified portfolio.”
Rule of 20; Is the Stock Market Fairly Valued by Michael P. Regan at Bloomberg Businessweek
“A measure of stock valuations called the Rule of 20 states that the stock market is fairly valued when the sum of the average price-earnings ratio and the rate of inflation is equal to 20. Above that level, stocks begin to get expensive; below it, they’re bargains.”

“How okay are you with a period of time in which nothing much is happening in the markets?

The Ultimate Cheat Sheet for Investing All of Your Money by James Altucher
“I’ve learned ONE MAJOR THING, which I will repeat below: ALL OF WALL STREET IS A SCAM. There are zero exceptions.
I’ve been a venture capitalist and a successful angel investor (I was a HORRIBLE venture capitalist though – but I put that under the category of “does not work well with others”).
I can’t raise money anymore. Nor do I want to play that game. I don’t BS about my losses and everyone else does.”
