Nordea: Risk perception index below 80 for the first time in five years

November 21, 2012
- Markets have during the past two weeks been characterized by more clear risk aversion on weak macro data

- EUR swap rates temporarily setting new all-time lows, EUR Senior Financials CDS increasing and EUR dropping below past months trading ranges.

- Nevertheless, implied vol within both rates, equities, FX, and commodities have been marked further down as low-for-even-longer view has been confirmed.

- For the first time in five years, Nordea Risk Perception Index has thus dropped below 80

- The primary drivers for the latest decrease are FX and equities

- Until year end, catalysts for substantial deterioration in risk sentiment are scarce and vols can thus easily loose further grounds.

- Strategies that benefit from markets being kept at bay while having protection against downside risks are still favored.
