    Stock Market Return Risk Ratio

    If you have a certain amount of money invested in the stock market for a moment of time, then there is an expected return on that investment (the stock market goes up on average), and a risk, a variance in that return (the stock market flucuates), both of which are proportional to the amount you have invested. As those moments
