Volatility

Category: Quant Insight

Volatility has remained low in all asset classes and has even declined slightly in the U.S. and developed markets. We think this supports a strong and healthy stock market that is likely to continue its advance.

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.
