Carnival of Passive Investing # 16 - March 2012

Thanks to everyone for participating. Congrats to this month's top 2 picks (shown below)!

1. Jacob presents The Permanent Portfolio by Harry Browne – Component Returns Correlation Analysis and My Future Plans posted at My Personal Finance Journey - This post describes Harry Browne’s Permanent Portfolio asset allocation strategy as a way to obtain market-beating returns, which aims to provide safety and stability to the money you deem that you cannot afford to lose. This post also presents a correlation coefficient matrix analysis of the returns of the various components of the Permanent Portfolio, as well as Jacob's future plans for using the Permanent Portfolio in his asset allocation strategy.

2. Echo presents How Index Funds Compare To Equity Mutual Funds posted at Boomer & Echo - In this post, Echo compared the 10-year performance of high cost Canadian equity mutual funds to the equivalent low-cost index funds. Here are the results.

Since Blog Carnival has ONCE AGAIN started to not work at all recently (most everyone that I know has had technical difficulties), you can use the Blog Carnival HQ submission form clicking here.

Also, I am now putting the final touches on the hosting schedule for 2012. Currently, all months have been claimed except for December 2012, so if you'd be interested in hosting on at the end of this year/beginning of 2013, take a look at the hosting schedule and then send me an email to get on the schedule.
