Similar to the loss standard deviation, but downside
deviation take into account only returns that fall below a
defined minimum acceptable return (MAR) rather than the
arithmetic mean. If the MAR, for example, is assumed to be 10
percent, the downside deviation would measure the variation of
each period that falls below 10 percent. Loss standard
deviation, by contrast, would only take losing periods,
calculate an average return for the losing periods, then
measure the variation between each losing return and the
losing return average.
Any losing period during an investment period. Defined as
the percentage retrenchment from an equity peak to an equity
valley. A drawdown is in effect from the time an equity
retrenchment begins until a new equity high is reached. That
is, in terms of time a drawdown encompasses both the period
from equity peak to equity valley and the time from the equity
valley to a new equity high.
