That is just charh of the many questions that can be answered by referencing the Andex chart put out and updated annually by the Morningstar, the financial services company that monitors and evaluates mutual funds. The Andex Chart is a fascinating compendium of economic and historical data crammed onto one chart.

The current chart depicts the annual returns of various assets overlaying a timeline from through December, Sprinkled on the chart are dots ancex various historical events that may have affected those returns.

Here a dot represents the fall of the Berlin Wall; there a dot represents the Challenger disaster. On the far left of the chart we see the effects of the Great Depression; on the far right the effects of the Great Recession from which we are still reeling.

Along the very top of the chart in bar graph form one sees the yearly and decade-long returns of various asset classes. Right below that 201 line depictions of the terms of the various presidents with andxe lines representing which party controlled the House and Senate.

The center of the chart is where the bulk of the data is depicted. Seven squiggly lines, for seven different asset classes ranging from small cap stocks to 30 day Treasury bills, begin at the far left corner and extend up to the right showing how each investment has grown over the years. Throughout this section is where the various historical events are pin-pointed. Through it all, with minor downturns here and there, the squiggly lines continue upward to the right. Near the bottom of the chart the prime rate is graphed.


Today the prime rate is ahdex 3. Along the inflation chart is a dot at representing the year the National Minimum Wage Act was passed which mandated that employers were to pay their employees the princely sum of 25 cents andwx hour.

The median price to earnings ratio for that index since is The current ratio of So, what is the lesson of the Andex Chart?

One is that our country has endured a lot since We have seen three major wars that cost thousands of lives and shook us to our core. Another is that there have been a number of major economic shocks that have rocked our markets and frightened investors. But, through it all those squiggly little lines just keep on going upward to the right. Of course there have been some periods where they declined for a while, but eventually they recover and head upward again. In spite of all the challenges this country has faced, those patient investors who have remained in the equity market have eventually been rewarded.

I suppose the main amdex for me is that we should never sell our country and its economic prowess short. I realize that we as a nation are facing a number of serious challenges currently, but I suspect they are no more serious than the ones previous generations faced. They survived and prospered; I suspect we will as well and that those squiggly little lines will continue upward to the right.
