Volatility reflects a fund's level of risk - the higher the number, the larger the potential for losing as well as making money. Funds denominated in the euro, which was adopted by the European Union only this year, used to be in ECU or other European currencies like the deutschmark and lira. Adjustments were made to make prices comparable over three years. HK = Hong Kong, SG = Singapore, and TW = Taiwan.
