The MSCI Security Crowding Model estimates crowding in individual stocks and allows us to estimate the crowding of portfolios by aggregating the stock-crowding scores. Which sectors or industry groups are currently the most crowded? How have they changed over time? See the latest and historical crowding scores of the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS®) sectors and industry groups using equal and market-capitalization weighting schemes.1

How to interact with this plot: Use the radio button to select an index. Click on a particular sector icon to highlight the crowding scores in the time-series charts. The latest crowding scores for sectors and industry groups are shown in the bar charts. Move the mouse over the time-series charts to select a date and observe the corresponding crowding scores in the bar chars.




1GICS is the global industry classification standard developed my MSCI and S&P Global Market Intelligence.
