Global Financial Stability Map: ASSESSMENT OF RISKS AND CONDITIONS, october 2017
(Notch changes since the April 2017 GFSR)
Away from center signifies higher risks, easier monetary and financial conditions, or higher risk appetite.
Note: Changes in risks and conditions are based on a range of indicators, complemented with IMF staff judgment (see Annex 1.1. in the April 2010 GFSR and Dattels and others (2010) for a description of the methodology underlying the Global Financial Stability Map). Overall notch changes are the simple average of notch changes in individual indicators. The number next to each legend indicates the number of individual indicators within each subcategory of risks and conditions. For lending standards, positive values represent a slower pace of tightening or faster easing. CB = central bank; QE = quantitative easing.
