The Standard deviation is one of the most basic measures of market volatility

Rule of thumb

Standard deviation is used in the construction of other indicators, such as Bollinger Bands

 

The moving averages used for the Standard deviation indicator can be based on a standard formula, however other types such as exponential, smoothed or linear weighted can also be applied

The standard deviation is a statistical indicator of volatility, i.e. how far prices deviate from  average prices.

 

standard deviation, volatility, market trend, smoothed

 

A high level of standard deviation will therefore indicate  more dynamic price actions in the given time period, while lower levels reflect rather stable market conditions. 

 

The standard deviation indicator on the MetaTrader 5 platform is calculated in relation to the moving average of market prices. The more observations  taken into account when calculating the indicator, the longer the period is for which the volatility is identified.

 

How to use it with MetaTrader 5:

  • Select a chart for which you want the standard deviation to be presented.
  • Go to: Insert - Indicators - Trend - standard deviation.
  • Standard deviation will be automatically calculated by MetaTrader 5, below the chart with prices.
