Every foreign investment is exposed to potential exchange rate fluctuations and volatility.

Opening an investment position in a foreign market means making two investment decisions: betting on both the foreign investment’s performance and the respective currency.



We designed our FX risk ratings to indicate the upside and downside potential of major cross-rate baskets (e.g., US Dollar versus European Euro and Japanese Yen, etc.) on an aggregated basis in percentage points.


Generally, a 60% or higher risk rating should indicate relatively high-risk and unfavorable investment conditions. A higher risk score means you should consider staying away from such markets or put your risk management skills in action to protect your investment.


A 40% or lower risk rating should signal a low-risk market with favorable market conditions for the respective cross rates basket.

Please find more details on our risk benchmarks at our risk rating overview.


We provide the following twelve foreign exchange market and cryptocurrencies risk ratings:
