The Bloomberg U.S. Financial Conditions Index is a measure of the number of standard deviations (z-score) the current financial conditions are above or below the average index value for the period of June-1994 to 2008. The index is calculated using yield spreads and indices from the Equity, Bond and Money Markets. The index is a useful and important gauge of the overall financial and credit markets conditions in the United States.

Because the index values represent a number of standard deviations, these values can be negative; a value of -1 for example means that the current U.S. Financial Conditions Index is one standard deviation below the average value for the period 1994-2008.

The index is updated daily and this item allows you to get historical data for the last 5 years.
On 5 May 2011, the U.S. Financial Conditions Index value was equal to 0.54. It is almost the highest value since April 2010. The fact that the last value is in positive territory is a sign that the economy is recovering and that the financial markets are doing well.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
