We continued to provide you information about the volatility of Romanian markets on indicevolatilitate.ase.ro. Read on for brief overview of the month in terms of market volatility...
Market Volatility in January 2017: We begin our series of stock market analysis by providing some results of our volatility indices computed for relevant financial time series. Our volatility index reflects the level of uncertainty implied by the stock market prices. The chart depicts the dynamics of annualized conditional volatilities produced by a large set of volatility models.
These computations are based on data extracted from Bloomberg. The methodology is presented on www.indicevolatilitate.ase.ro. The values represent conditional annualized volatilities.
Market Volatility in January 2017: We notice that our gauge of volatility reflects a realm of calmness for our market in the last month, with higher levels at the beginning of the year and the end of January.
These computations are based on data extracted from Bloomberg for the 25 assets that compose the BET-XT index. The methodology is presented on www.indicevolatilitate.ase.ro. The red line is the median of annualized volatilities, the black shaded area depicts the values situated between the 25th and the 75th percentile and the larger shaded area shows the range of these volatilities.
Market Volatility in January 2017: The distribution of volatilities computed using the same methodology for each financial asset employed in the computation of the BET-XT index show that, with very few exceptions, the risk is equally distributed for the spectrum of these equities, with a larger dispersion at the beginning of the year.
We are almost done with the new version of our website in English. Also planned, a refurbish of our website in Romanian.
We shall wrap up the first semester with the exam session. One week of holiday, then full speed ahead to the Second Semester.
In other news: Erasmus+ educational offer is online, the distribution on topics and teachers for the graduation theses shall be posted in its final version, the Student's Scientific Competition is getting near.
Thank you for joining us through the first month of 2017 and Stay tuned to the life of REI @ www.rei.ase.ro
