The correlation of Vanguard Total is a statistical measure of how it moves in relation to other equities. This measure is expressed in what is known as the correlation coefficient, which ranges between -1 and +1. A perfect positive correlation (i.e., a correlation coefficient of +1) implies that as Vanguard Total moves, either up or down, the other security will move in the same direction. Alternatively, perfect negative correlation means that if Vanguard Total Bond moves in either direction, the perfectly negatively correlated security will move in the opposite direction. If the correlation is 0, the equities are not correlated; they are entirely random. A correlation greater than 0.8 is generally described as strong, whereas a correlation less than 0.5 is generally considered weak.

The ability to find closely correlated positions to Vanguard Total could be a great tool in your tax-loss harvesting strategies, allowing investors a quick way to find a similar-enough asset to replace Vanguard Total when you sell it. If you don't do this, your portfolio allocation will be skewed against your target asset allocation. So, investors can't just sell and buy back Vanguard Total - that would be a violation of the tax code under the "wash sale" rule, and this is why you need to find a similar enough asset and use the proceeds from selling Vanguard Total Bond to buy it.

Correlation Matchups

The Correlation Coefficient is a useful tool to identify correlated or non-correlated securities, which is essential in developing a diversified portfolio. It tells us the relationship between two positions you have in your portfolio or considering acquiring. Over a given time period, the two securities movetogether when the Correlation Coefficient is positive. Conversely, the two assets move in opposite directions when the Correlation Coefficient is negative. Determining your positions' relationship to each other is valuable for analyzing and projecting your portfolio's future expected return and risk.
