Release: Cleveland Financial Stress Index
In May of 2016, the source discovered errors in the calculation of the CFSI and began a detailed review of the index and its underlying model. Following that review, the source decided to discontinue the CFSI. https://www.clevelandfed.org/en/our-research/indicators-and-data/cleveland-financial-stress-index.aspx
The source has posted to their website a message regarding this release: Cleveland Financial Stress Index under review and a revised index expected in the fourth quarter of 2016. A thorough review of the index is being conducted to both simplify the index and enhance its robustness, while also taking into consideration changes in financial markets and institutions. This review and the revisions to the CFSI are expected to be completed sometime during the fourth quarter of this year, and additional details will be made available at that time. Thank you for your patience while we improve the CFSI.
This chart shows the contribution of the weighted dollar crashes indicator to the CFSI. This indicator is measured as the ratio of the current value of the trade-weighted US dollar exchange index relative to the maximum over the previous 365 days. It measures flight from the US dollar toward a broad set of foreign currencies. This signals increased demand for liquidity from the domestic financial system, requiring unanticipated and potentially inefficient lending. This indicator measures flight from the U.S. dollar toward a broad set of foreign currencies.
