This week Real Vision’s Roger Hirst uses Refinitiv’s best-in-class data to look at the current level of volatility, which is high, but not excessive. Most major market lows are telegraphed by a surge in volatility, but should we expect that again this time? In fact, the volatility of volatility is remarkably well behaved. This could be due to the structural sellers who are unwinding based on rules, rather than panicking on the back of emotions. In the Chatter segment, we look at the structure of the UK’s financial services sector and the changes that are taking place in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd.
