Volatility Indicator

Also called the coefficient of variation. Volatility is used to see if price behavior is changing a lot or staying within a small range.



When volatility is low, the current trend in price is likely to continue.
When volatility is high, the price will swing a lot around it's trend.

A range of volatility that is broken can suggest two things. When the range is broken upward (higher volatility) means a change in trend. When it breaks downward (lower volatility) than the usual range, then that means frequency and severity of short-term price swings will decrease as the overall trend establishes itself among traders.
