I have been invested in Vanguard’s European Stock fund since about the adoption of the Euro, My logic was that the invention of the Euro would lead as promised to lower transactions costs, more and easier trading, and greater integration of the European economies, leading to all the benefits of international trade that Adam Smith promised. It was also a play on what I thought was an overvalued dollar. Even before the Euro collapse, it was a loser. I also shifted much of my TSP into the I fund for similar reasons as well as to balance other of our heavily weighted S&P 500 investments. That too has been a loser. The biggest winner has been the TSP S fund.

Generally, I have been unsuccessful in shifting out of US stocks either into bond or international stock funds when I was expecting a decline in US stocks. All seem generally to be highly correlated.

My general aversion to bonds -- a Wimpyish promise to pay Tuesday what we give today, if things don't go bad, and to hopefully pay interest equal to the loss of value in the principal with little prospect for real gains, has meant that I did miss the historic bond gains from the great deflation of the past third of a century. However, at zero interest rates, how can I be wrong to be bearish on bonds today? In contrast, at least in stocks, the best minds in US are trying to make the value of your stock go up.

Best,
