Diversification can be neatly summed up as, Dont put all your eggs in onebasket.The idea is that if one investment loses money, the other investments will make up for those losses. Diversification cant guarantee that your investments wont suffer if the market drops. But it can improve the chances that you wont lose money, or that if you do, it wont be as much as if you werent diversified.
