I’m stuck in calculating downside deviation shown in the cfai text, page 83, vol 5
More specifically, i’m confused in how you get to the third column of exhibit 29. The footnote tells you that (HF return-hurdle rate)^2 is only calculated when fund/index return < hurdle rate which is 0.4167.
THere are couple instances i see where we get a value for column 3 when fund/index return > hurdle
eg. for March (-1/-1.6)>0.4167. why did cfai calculate a value for this month on column 3?
Thanks in advance. Spending too much time trying to figure this out.
