Global Equity Market Watch - May 2014
May 9, 2014
The Global Equity Market Watch is a monthly publication that looks at global equity markets through the lens of the Barra Global Equity Model (GEM2). In each issue, we examine the various sources of global equity returns and risk - including the World factor, countries, industries, styles, currencies, and stock-specific sources - and monitor returns, volatilities, and correlations for those sources over the trailing 1-12 months. We also examine how the explanatory power and statistical significance of the factors evolve over time.
