Part 3
ROLLING RETURNS, 2000 - 2019: S&P Global Index

Rolling Period          Last / Percentile          Best / Average / Worst
 1 Year                     1% / 37th                    47% / 4% / -46%
 2 Year                     10% / 46th                  70% / 9% / -47%
 4 Year                     19% / 47th                  76% / 16% / -37%
 8 Year                     40% / 71st                  106% / 21% / -40%
 16 Year                   96% / 72nd                  140% / 72% / 8%

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, (6/2017 - 5/2019), the S&P Global Index returned
10%. That period scored in the 46th percentile, meaning that it scored better
than 46% of all rolling 2 year periods since 2000. The Best rolling 2 Year period
since 2000 returned 70%. The worst returned -47%. The average rolling 2 year
period returned 9%.

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

The number of periods in each category for the S&P Global Index are as follows:
1 Year: 210

16 Year: 30

Dividends are not included.
