Traditionally, we are told that we should diversify our assets geographically.
However, having observed the ups and downs of the global market, the correlation between most stock exchanges seems to be very high: USA, UK, Germany, France, etc, all go up and down with each other.
It's undeniable that we live in a global economy. So, why should we invest in foreign stocks, and expose ourselves to currency fluctuations, if our domestic stock exchange will have the same up/down tendencies?
