Chart of the Week

08 January 2018

The chart of the week is from Cambridge Associates’ “Market Matters” and shows that 2017 was an amazing year for record low volatility. In fact, all four quarters rank in the top five low volatility quarters for the S&P 500 since inception in 1990. Note the opposite end of the chart showing the higher volatility meltdown in the fourth quarter of 2008 and first quarter of 2009.
