Submission: 2002, October 30.

*Abstract:
We show that the closed stability index of an excellent
henselian local ring of dimension $d > 2$ with real closed residue
field is $\ol s(A)=\frac{1}{2}d(d+1)$. When $d=2$ it is shown that
the value of $\ol s(A)$ can be be either 2 or 3 and give
characterizations of each of these values in terms of the relation of
$A$ with its normalization and in terms of the real spectrum of $A$.*
