One look - All important stock market risk indices
Just like the quote "It's Not How You Start but How You Finish" says, the exit of a market timing signal determines the profit of a trade.
As stocks provide the best chance to maximize long term returns, we are investing in stock markets as long as our exit signals are NOT active.
Stock market risk indices
The Global Stock Market Risk Index (GSMRI) remains positive. The GSMRI increases to 39% - a positive reading. Last week the GSMRI reached a positive level of 30%.
Our stock risk indices and crash indications have been created to indicate the potential risk of global and regional 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. The comprehensive and broad Global Stock Market Risk Index (GSMRI) is tracking 101 stock markets of developed and emerging countries.
