Well…we don’t think things are back to normal, but stock market investors sure seem to. Volatility—a good indicator of perceived risk—dropped below the 50-year average for the first time in three years in 4Q10 and overall, 2010 was just 19% above average (way down from 2008-9). For the details, check out “For Market Volatility, No News Is Good News,” published on The Motley Fool website.
