    Volatility is a measure of the frequency and magnitude of price swings up and down in a market or stock over a period of time. Lower volatility is when prices are calmer and don't swing up and down as much. Higher volatility is when price movement spreads out, and prices swing up and down in a wider. Volatility is a fundamental issue in financial markets which has important implications for risk management. An increase in stock market volatility leads to a large increase or decrease in stock prices and shows higher stock market risk (Campbell and Hentschel, ).Author: Hooi Hooi Lean and Geok Peng Yeap.

    equity volatility, and, even more specifically, the VIX. The VIX is the implied volatility of the S&P Index, and tracks the market’s expectation of day volatility. Risk-adjusted returns tend to be strongest in low and low– medium volatility periods. Returns can also be good in high-volatility periods but the risk-adjusted return is. as financial leverage, risk premia, time-varying asset volatility, and so forth. The main conclusion is that the level of conditional equity volatility of a firm is mostly described by financial leverage, the lagged asset volatility of markets, and the lagged asset volatility of the Size: KB.

Asymmetric volatility concerns the relation of returns to future expected volatility. Much is known from option prices about the marginal risk-neutral distributions of S&P returns and of relative changes in future expected volatility (VIX).Cited by: 9.

in downside correlations into account. Asymmetric correlations have similar implications in risk management. In this paper, we examine this correlation asymmetry in several ways. We begin by formally defining downside correlations as correlations for which both the equity portfolio and the market return are below a pre-specified by: Our ndings show that volatility spillover between European equity and foreign exchange markets is asymmetric across the frequency domain and bidirectional in nearly all cases.

Daily volatility spillover from equity prices to exchange rates is signi cant at high, mid-range, and low frequencies for all six equity index and exchange rate pairs.

Another type of asymmetrical risk phenomenon is the asymmetric volatility that is characteristic of the stock market. Let’s see what’s the asymmetric volatility phenomenon meaning.

The asymmetric volatility phenomenon describes the natural inclination of stock market volatility to be higher in bear markets and slower in bullish markets/5(3).

Market risk is the risk of losses in positions arising from movements in market prices. Nevertheless, the most commonly used types of market risk are: Equity risk, the risk that stock or stock indices (e.g. Euro St etc.) asymmetric volatility, skewness, and kurtosis is.

Volatility risk is the risk of a change of price of a portfolio as a result of changes in the volatility of a risk factor. It usually applies to portfolios of derivatives instruments, where the volatility of its underlying is a major influencer of prices.

1 Sensitivity to. We document asymmetry in return and volatility spillover between equity and bond markets in Australia for daily returns during the period. A situation in which the volatility of a security is higher when the broader market is performing poorly than when it is performing well.
