Part 3
ROLLING RETURNS, 1990 - 2017: DAX Stock Index

Rolling Period          Last / Percentile          Best / Average / Worst
 1 Year                     17% / 55th                  79% / 11% / -49%
 2 Year                     7% / 28th                    132% / 23% / -60%
 4 Year                     46% / 48th                  229% / 50% / -50%
 8 Year                     127% / 76th               384% / 90% / -34%
 16 Year                   128% / 38th               401% / 173% / 23%

How do you read the table?
For example: Rolling 2 year period returns are shown on the second row. In the
latest rolling 2 year period, (8/2015 - 7/2017), the DAX Stock Index returned
7%. That period scored in the 28th percentile, meaning that it scored better
than 28% of all rolling 2 year periods since 1990. The Best rolling 2 Year period
since 1990 returned 132%. The worst returned -60%. The average rolling 2
year period returned 23%.

What is a rolling period?
It's an overlapping period in a data base. For example: In the 2 year period
included in 2000 - 2001, there are 13 complete rolling 12 Month Periods. The
first is January, 2000 - December, 2000. The second is February, 2000 -
January, 2001. The third is March, 2000 - February, 2001 and so on. The last
complete rolling 12 Month Period in the 2000 - 2001 period is January, 2001 -
December, 2001.

How is this information useful?
Best and worst case scenarios may be estimated based on historical facts.
Also, the relationship of the periods is sometimes very helpful. Suppose that the
worst rolling 8 year period in the last 50 years returned -30%. Suppose also
that the latest 4 year period has returned -50%. Market psychology at this point
may be one of great fear or possibly even panic. If the market stays flat for 4
more years, it will break the 8 year decline record by a whopping 20%! (-50%
minus -30% equals -20%.)  50 plus year records are not often broken. That
provides reason to hope that the market will recover that 20% over the next 4
years. If it does, then the 8 year loss will be 30%. The longest index histories
are found in the DJIA, FTSE 100 with FT 30, DJTA, DJUA, S&P 500, & NASDAQ
100
