The line chart is a lie. See more clearly with histograms.

For decades, we’ve looked at line charts that show the growth of an asset – staring into it like a crystal ball and analyzing it for unrevealed secrets. The line chart is a lie. Hidden in the line chart are traps – volatility and risk – that we need a better visual for. The better visual is the histogram.

Big swings are typical, day to day. There are big gains to be had, but big losses too. Better take your anti-nausea meds.

You’ve probably seen the “bell curve” shape. Most returns are in the middle. Losses are small and so are gains. Wild days are rare.

The more stable the asset, the more the bars of the histogram move into the middle. These assets rarely have big swings, but also may have slow growth.

Diversification is more than different sectors.

The reason for diversification is to make sure the assets in your portfolio don’t move together, so you have a shot at withstanding crazy market swings.
