Reading 26 EOC Question 11

Hey Guys

How did they calculate 28.78? I am getting 22.6.


So as an example Jan = Min(3.5-0.416,0)*2

With exam day right around the corner, Schweser's Final Review products are designed to help you finish out your study plan and walk into the testing center feeling prepared and confident.

they are asking for downside deviation.

so you need to look at only those points where the return is < average return over the 12 month period (which is 0.6416) and only for those numbers do the sum of (return-0.416)^2

that did turn out to be 28.78…. for the 6 periods where return is < 0.6416
