Compounding vs Non-Compounding

In Non-Compounding investment, the investors always use a fixed amount of money for each investment. For example, an investor started his investment with $10k cash and made 10% or $1k gain after certain period of time. Then the investor will still use the $10k for his next investment. The total return will be the sums of the gain or loss of each individual investment. The total return after n weeks will be

ttl G/L% = wk1 G/L% + wk2 G/L% + ... + wkn G/L%.

In compounding investment, investors use the previous investment plus the return from the previous investment for their next investment. For example, an investor started his investment with $10k cash and made 10% or $1k gain after certain period of time. Then the investor will use $11k for his next investment.

The compounding period could be weekly, monthly or yearly, etc. The total return for next time period will be calculated as follows:

ttl G/L% (period 2) = (1+ G/L% (period2)) x (1+ttl G/L% (period 1)) .
