In this paper, we introduce a continuous and forward-looking stability indicator for the banking system based on information on all financial institutions in Germany between 1995 and 2010. Explaining this indicator by means of panel regression techniques, we identify significant macroprudential early warning indicators (such as asset price indicators, leading indicators for the business cycle and monetary indicators) and spillover effects. International spillovers play a significant role across all banking sectors, whereas regional spillovers and the credit-to- GDP ratio are more important for cooperative banks and less relevant for commercial banks.
