Our stock risk indices and crash indications have been created to indicate the potential risk of global, regional and country-based stock market investments on an aggregated basis in percentage points.
A low percentage reading indicates a positive and rather low risk environment for stock markets.
Generally, a risk index level equal or above 60% should indicate a relatively high-risk situation.
