Volatility

Category: Quant Insight

Volatility picked up slightly last week, but this is off historically low levels and is likely just backing up from those levels. We believe the overall low market risk favors continued growth in stocks and commodities.

Market volatility is an indicator of financial stress. Low or declining volatility environments may indicate favorable periods for equity investments, whereas rising volatility periods may favor sovereign debt and developed market currency exposure.
