The Charts Give You A Colorful View of Past Stock Market Performance

By

The charts in this series show you stock market performance compared to other safer investments like bonds or treasury securities. Returns are shown in the form of rolling index returns.

Rolling returns do not go by calendar year; instead they look at every one year, three year, five year, etc. time period beginning anew each month over the historical time frame selected. Rolling returns give you a much better indication of stock market performance than most other ways of looking at market returns.
