Daily risk forecast for Wednesday, February 22 (euro) and Wednesday, January 11 (SP-500)

The Daily Risk page shows one day risk forecasts for a range of assets and models. The forecasts are updated daily as the closing prices become available.

These measures are described here, while the statistical models used in the forecasting can be seen here.

The assets are a number of euro exchange rates as well as the SP-500 index. Therefore, the risk is of the euro falling.
