    The core logic MacroVar models is the following: There are two market environments: Risk On periods during which funds flow from safe assets to risky assets and Risk Off periods where funds flow from risky assets to low-risk assets.
    - Risk Assets (Risk-On): Stocks, Cyclical Commodities, Cyclical Sectors / Industries, High Yield Bonds, Cyclical Currencies, Emerging Markets (Capital flows to emerging markets in search for higher yields, higher growth rates and hence profits)
    - Safe Assets (Risk-Off): US Treasuries, German Bunds, Defensive Sectors / Industries, US Dollar DXY, Swiss Franc, Japanese Yen, Gold
    - The most important asset correlation is between the stocks and Bonds. During risk on periods stocks rise while bonds are sold and vice-versa. Equities are closely linked with credit hence MacroVar monitors closely the performance of corporate reads for US and EU markets. Explore in detail MacroVar Financial model top down approach.
  • MacroVar Macroeconomic models
    MacroVar analyzes the economic growth of the global economy as a whole and the 35 largest economies in the world by monitoring macroeconomic and financial indicators for each country.
    The two most important economic indicators of a country are real economic growth and inflation. An economy is healthy when it generates stable economic growth with low inflation. Policymakers (government & central bank) use fiscal and monetary policy to inject liquidity during slowdowns (to solve weak economic growth) and withdraw liquidity from an overheating economy (to solve high inflation).

    The four economic environments
    Financial assets are affected by economic growth and inflation expectations. The performance of each financial asset for each economic environment is explained below. Growth versus Inflation
    MacroVar uses leading economic indicators for each country to predict economic and inflation expectations. More specifically, PMI, ISM and ESI components are used for structuring this model. Read more about analyzing a country’s macroeconomics in detail.
