Should you change your investing style in 2012?  Not unless you’re changing from active to passive investing. If you’re already in a globally diversified, risk-appropriate portfolio, there’s no need to change styles based on market volatility. Mark and Tom look back at 2011 and review lessons learned from the past year. They present an article by Bryan Harris that includes two informative charts from Dimensional, depicting U.S. Stock Market Performance and the World Stock Market Performance throughout 2011. They also discuss a Forbes article titled, “Actual Mutual Funds Stink Worse than Ever.”
