Kansas City Financial Stress Index hits Lowest Level since June 2007

The Kansas City Financial Stress Index ended February on -0.61, the lowest level since it hit -0.64 in June 2007. Low figures indicate less financial stress in the U.S. financial markets and the current reading therefore suggest the stress level is now at its lowest for almost six years.

But, judged on what happened in the aftermath almost six years ago with the "credit crunch", the current low level of financial stress suggests investors should not become complacent but instead be prepared for a more volatile period to come.
