A risk profile shows the probability densities that correspond to each possible profit or loss level.

The **green** line corresponds to the risk profile of a atypical diversified portfolio.
E. g. this risk profile shows that, for the considered portfolio,

- The
**highest**probability density corresponds to a yield of**5%**

(N.B. this is**not**the expected yield, but the yield With the highest probability density) - Yields of more than 20% should not be expected.
- There is a great probability of making a loss with such a portfolio (the probability densities for negative yields are too high to be neglected).
