PortfolioScience, a leading risk management service provider, has launched VolatilityWatch.com, a site that monitors the volatility of Energy, Metals, Currency, Commodity, and Equity markets. Using the company’s RiskAPI® distributed risk application interface, the site keeps track of several different historical volatility measurements of key, economically crucial assets. “The entire world is watching the price action of assets like oil and gold - literally tick by tick”, said Ittai Korin, founder and president of PortfolioScience. “With VolatilityWatch.com, investors, portfolio managers, and traders can quickly quantify the price action of these and other important commodities”.
Visitors to the site can view 1-month through 12-month volatility measurements for a sampling of each major asset group. Additionally, the site provides volatility-over-time and performance charts, giving users a unique ability to compare trends in price to trends in volatility. Registered users can enter thousands of tradable financial instruments available via the RiskAPI global financial database.
“With many of the world’s most important markets at or near all-time highs, understanding and anticipating volatility is crucial. VolatilityWatch.com reduces this task to something surprisingly manageable.”, Korin said.
