Beta

Beta is the slope of the regression line. Beta measures the risk of a particular investment relative to the market as a whole (the “market” can be any index or investment you specify). It describes the sensitivity of the investment to broad market movements. For example, in equities, the stock market (the independent variable) is assigned a beta of 1.0. An investment which has a beta of 0.5 will tend to participate in broad market moves, but only half as much as the market as a whole.
