This article is one of the best and simplest articles I have ever read about creating the most profitable portfolio with the lowest risk. The ultimate buy and hold strategy uses no load index funds to create a sophisticated asset allocation model with worldwide diversification and the addition of value stocks and small cap stocks to a traditional large-cap growth stock portfolio.

The article says the truth is that your choice of asset classes has far more impact on your results than any other investment decision you make.
It also points out that short term bonds are as good as long term with less risk.

Anyway it is definately worth a read
