The Federal Reserve “Stress Index” is very low right now, most likely due to the stock market performance and economy over the past few years. Is this good news? Sure!
Should we be stressed over such low levels of stress? I wouldn’t suggest that you get stressed, we should understand though that…. market peaks and rising levels of stress do seem to come into the market when the stress level is at very low readings.
Overall the only time in history the stress index was lower, was back in 2007!
