A Deeper Look at Stock Market Volatility

Daniel R. Trentman
Prof. Charles Boughton, Faculty Mentor

Aside from economic collapses such as the Great Depression and the Great Recession, the average investor can expect the stock market to be rather steady over a number of years, with normal dips and rises due to changing market conditions or nationwide events. Still, one question that continues to arise involves how stock market volatility is changing over time. This question has mixed answers, because the answer depends on the period of time that one may be evaluating. My research dives into the short term and long term differences in stock market volatility dating back to 1940. I then explore a variety of reasons for these changes in market volatility, and what they could tell us about the future.
