ROLLING RETURNS, 1992 - 2018: Mexico IPC Index
Rolling Period Last / Percentile Best / Average / Worst
1 Year -4% / 16th 86% / 17% / -41%
2 Year 2% / 12th 147% / 37% / -37%
4 Year 15% / 6th 376% / 89% / 4%
8 Year 40% / 0 PCTL 611% / 250% / 39%
16 Year 538% / 3rd 2359% / 1062% / 480%
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, (4/2016 - 3/2018), the Mexico IPC Index returned
2%. That period scored in the 12th percentile, meaning that it scored better
than 12% of all rolling 2 year periods since 1992. The Best rolling 2 Year period
since 1992 returned 147%. The worst returned -37%. The average rolling 2
year period returned 37%.
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 -
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
