Risk Indicator Lowest Since Aug 2014
The proprietary risk indicator we use in several of our strategies is the lowest it has been since Aug 29th, 2014.
It currently stands at two thirds of its historical average since March 2001 and has been only this low or lower 12% of the time since then.
Whether markets are overly complacent or not is a matter of debate. The point is that the market risk needle is, rightly or wrongly, back in the green for the first time since last summer.
