We often think about volatility in terms of risk. High volatility is synonymous with risky investments. But what if we were able to use volatility as a trend indicator? Given that each security has it’s own levels of volatility, we’d have a metric which auto-tunes to the security we are analysing.

In this presentation, Mathew will explain how we can use volatility to identify changes in trend—based on a 1990’s technique—and how that can be used to produce some unique breadth measures. He’ll finish up with a full quantitative analysis of the techniques.
