Diverdify your portfolio - invest in Africa

One of the first rules for successful investment is “diversify your portfolio.” If you want a higher return at lower risk, buy stocks and bonds that don’t rise and fall together. 

So , to understand we need to understand whether stocks or bonds are positively or negatively correlated. A research conducted by Todd Moss and Ross Thuotte of the Center for Global Development indicates that:
The monthly correlation between S&P 500 and Europe was 0.817 from 2009 to 2011
The monthly correlation between S&P 500 and Latin America was 0.823 from 2009 to 2011
The monthly correlation between S&P 500 and Asia was 0.71 from 2009 to 2011
The monthly correlation between S&P 500 and South Africa was 0.36 from 2009 to 2011
The monthly correlation between S&P 500 and North Africa And Middle East was 0.41 from 2009 to 2011
