Stock Market Risk Rating Overview as of 12/27/2019
The tables below show the recent risk ratings of major stock investment benchmarks.
Generally, a risk rating of 60% or higher indicates high-risk and unfavorable investment conditions. This means you should consider staying away from such markets, or if you have already invested, put your risk management skills in action to protect your investment.
A risk rating of 40% or lower means a low-risk environment with favorable market conditions for stock investments.
Combine our risk ratings with our savvy investment strategies, and you find it easier to invest successfully.

Major Stock Market Risk Ratings at a Glance
The global stock market size is estimated to have a worth of 80 trillion USD. In comparison, the market capitalization of all US stocks is expected to be 30 trillion USD. Considering this market size, not investing in stocks would be a mistake. Investing in stocks, along with other assets, would also mean having a diversified investment portfolio.
However, unlike the bond market, the stock market is highly volatile. It isn’t easy to forecast where the market is headed. You cannot protect your investment unless you are aware of the risk situation of the stock market. This is why you need to pay attention to the risks of various stock markets around the world.
We will help you to keep yourself up-to-date about the current market situation.
