Stock Market Volatility

By Ralph Goldsticker, CFA | 9 September 2019



The chart highlights the increase of the frequency of large daily stock moves that we have seen this year. Coming out of the Financial Crisis, 30% to 40% of the days had moves larger than 1%. Then markets calmed down. Only 3% of the days during 2017 saw significant moves. Volatility returned in 2018 and 2019.
