Trump era brings lowest stock market volatility since early 1960s

FT/John Authers & Joanna S Kao/11-13-17

The year after Donald Trump’s surprise victory in the US presidential election have been the quietest months for the US stock market in more than half a century.

“The longer a low volatility environment persists, the greater the average equity market drawdown when it ends.” — Jacob Mitchell

…the current Sharpe ratio would put this rally in the 0.3 percentile of the best times in history,” said Vincent Deluard, head of global macro strategy at INTL FCStone. “Let that sink in: this stock market is better than 99.7 per cent of the times since 1900.”

PG View: From this condition has sprung perhaps the most pronounced (and dangerous!) investor complacency of our lifetimes! Another pertinent quote appeared on the JSMineSet sight today:

‘The problem with bubbles is that they force one to decide whether to look like an idiot before the peak, or an idiot after the peak.’ — John Hussman

I would suggest that getting out of frothy investments early is far less an evil.
