Spectrum European Retail Investor Index (SERIX)


Tools to help you go further.

The SERIX™ is a pan-European client sentiment that informs as to whether investors have speculated on a rising or falling market. Use the SERIX to compare how the client sentiment has changed (in terms of directionality or strength of sentiment) over time on a monthly basis.

  • A transparent view of investor speculation based on real trades
  • Insight into month-on-month trends at a glance
  • A comparison for your market assessment against that of other market players


The Calculation

The calculation is centred around 100. An index figure of >100 represents a bullish sentiment where more investors expect a rising market. An index figure of <100 represents a bearish sentiment where more investors expect the market to fall.
