A simple online tool provides a real-time measure of the complexity of stocks, funds, ETFs, bonds, or indices.  In addition to the value of complexity, the system indicates if the said value is Low, Medium or High.

Complexity is computed based on the last 60 trading days. This means that every day the value may change.

High complexity implies that the dynamics of the price over a certain period is involved, potentially chaotic and difficult to forecast.

The following example is relative to a set of tech stocks (computed in August, 2017 and are not updated):

The same list of stocks from the above example - FB, GOOG, AAPL, MSFT, AMZN, TWTR, IBM, HPQ - can be use to build and rate a portfolio. Just click on 'Create Portfolio'. The result includes the following interactive Portfolio Map:

 

A Portfolio Complexity Map illustrates the interdependencies between the portfolio components. The large nodes are the drivers of portfolio complexity (volatility) and influence significantly its resilience.
