Quick info

Our FX, bond, and stock market risk ratings have been created to indicate the potential risk of investments on an aggregated basis in percentage points. A low percentage reading suggests a positive and rather low-risk environment for the respective market.

Generally, a risk level equal to or above 60% should indicate a relatively high-risk and unfavorable market environment.
