AssetMacro analyzes Global Stocks, Bonds, Currencies, Banks & Liquidity Real-time and notifies you when Market Risk is high to adjust your portfolio.


Market Risk Radar monitors specific financial markets highly sensitive to different types of risk. The combination of these markets has historically predicted successfully crisis which were initiated from specific countries (Asian Crisis 1997, European Debt Crisis 2010) or Asset classes (US Stock Market Crashes of 1987, 2000, 2008, US Subprime Crisis 2007). The Global Risk signal is an average of multiple subsidiary signals covering different markets. When Global Risk Levels reach certain levels it is highly advisable to reduce portfolio risk by selling risky assets like stocks since historically their expected profits fall sharply and their volatility increases.

The tabs above is a snapshot of the average Global Risk levels and the average risk of major markets. Risk is displayed as Low (Green), Medium (Orange), High (Red). Click on each tab to learn more about which indicators are calculated and how they have predicted past crisis.
