Volatility

Category: Quant Insight

Stock volatility still remains high, although it has dipped a bit in Europe and Japan. We believe this is consistent with momentum and signals that the current run up in stock prices is not an all clear signal.

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.
