The Sharpe ratio measures the excess return per unit of deviation, or risk. Correlation is a measure of how investments move in relation to one another. A correlation of 1 means the two asset classes move exactly in line with each other, while a correlation of -1 means they move in the exact opposite direction. A non-correlated asset (or security) is an asset whose value isn’t tied to larger fluctuations in the traditional markets.


Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market.
