Because of other business items, a semi-vacation trip I am taking this week, and other interruptions, I am going to continue to provide some additional shades of meaning to the dilemma of how returns in the stock market are generational in nature (that is, they go through cycles that can last a generation). I will also discuss, via the works of Ed Easterling of Crestmark Holdings, LLC, how volatility can skew compounded returns (the only way to measure real growth in equities) to numbers far lower than are reported, and how those volatility cycles can be exacerbated by, of all things, life happening to investors (college, home, ... market research, surveys and trends
