Back to your original assumption that this year's (or take any other period) returns are somehow a function of something - returns and dispersions from recent past for various asset classes as you assume - do you have any actual data to back it up?

Correlation is a mathematical measurement of the similarity of any two series. A correlation coefficient can be calculated between any two series. Look it up or google "correlation coefficient" if you want to see how it works.
