When was the last time you saw stocks (NYSEArca: VTI - News), bonds (NYSEArca: AGG) and commodities (NYSEArca: DBC - News) move in sync for nearly two years?
When was the last time asset allocation did not really provide the diversification and protection it was supposed to?
When was the last time, a ten year investment in the stock market delivered negative returns?

Its just too bad I am not riding this rally on its way up, but I will be glad I got nothing in the market on its way down. I already experienced that last year.
