Abstract

Tension between the US and other countries has increased nervousness in the past two weeks, according to Bank of America's Global Financial Stress Index, the same reading seen in the VIX and SKEW indices. According to different measures, recent conflicts involving the United States, Syria, North Korea, Russia and China have generated greater volatility, which in turn generates a greater appetite for assets that provide protection, from precious metals to coverages in the derivatives market.
