    VNQ & XLF

    Any ideas why their charts have been closely following each other?

    • That is simple...both move up or down based on the same economic conditions or news! further you can't support one without the other...
      This may sound too simplistic, but do you really need examples.

      XLF you can have! Financial will stay down for many years to come, and who knows when decent dividend will return?

      VNQ on the other hand is a SCREAMING BUY! I am buying 5 indexes weekly though a DRIP
      this is a formula of success and income for the rest of my life

      VNQ=indexed REITs
      DTH= International High Dividend Equitys
      DVY= indexed DOW Dividends
      BYM= Indexed INSURED Municipals
      XLU= Indexed American Utilities

      Big winning when the world turns around!

    • Hmmm... because correlations in general are absurdly high and both of these represent pure trash?
