I have posted a few times but mostly I just enjoy reading all of the posts and learning what I can. If diversification is best when assets negatively correlate, I was wondering what you all thought of a portfolio 35% bonds comprised of vanguard long term investment grade corporate, 65% stocks made of 50% TSM and 15% total international stock from vanguard. The chart is here:

Please give me your thoughts. I see some excellent strong negative correlation. I understand people typically recommend treasuries as a flight to quality ensues in bear markets but is this not just as good? Why/ why not?
