Adaptive currently uses an absolute scale for Risk Weather status, based on the Risk Weather definition:
|Risk Weather||VIX Range||Frequency
|Low||0 to 15||34%||VIX 15 is Medium|
|Medium||15 to 20||28%||VIX 20 is High|
|High||20 to 30||30%||VIX 30 is Very High|
|Very High||30 or Greater||8%|
“Frequency” is a measure of how much time the market has spent historically in these various ratings, with “Low” the most common—and “Very High” the most rare—over the last three decades.
