Liquidity Falls in Top Global Markets, RCA Report Shows

By on April 12th, 2018

Liquidity fell in 25 of the global top 50 most liquid markets at the end of 2017, with North American markets faring the worst, the latest RCA Capital Liquidity Scores report shows.

Of the 21 North American markets in the global top list, 16 recorded lower scores in Q4’17 compared with a year earlier, four were flat and only one recorded an increase. In Europe 12 out of their 20 markets logged higher scores and in Asia Pacific five of their nine markets in the global top 50 showed increasing scores.

While liquidity has been waning or flat in the top markets, it is still above the long-term average for 46 of the global top 50, the report shows. Central London was one of the four markets showing a decline and it is now at #5 in the global liquidity rankings, its lowest recorded position since the scores started in 2008.
