Thanks so much SirTas for your input.
The diversification issue just came up when I read in an indexing website (which of course I can't find at the moment) that says that investing in Russell, Mid Cap, and 500 indices was not technically "diversified" in that they tend to fluctuate together.
At that point they brought up EAFE and other markets that tend to be more independent, and in essence, investing in an index or two outside of the norm was diversified in regard to an index portfolio. Unfortunately, the indexes I'm invested in are the only ones they offer.
I, too, like your thoughts on investing in the slow man, so to speak. It is very difficult to curb the desire to do just the opposite. I have caught myself numerous times thinking about it.
Again, thanks for your time and thoughts. Greatly appreciated them.
