Natenberg's Volatility

rev. 01/21/97

Historical volatility is defined by Sheldon Natenberg, as the standard deviation of the logarithmic price changes measured at regular intervals of time. In Mr. Natenberg's book, "Option Volatility & Pricing," he covers volatility in detail and gives the formula for computing historical volatility. In MetaStock, the equivalent formula would be:

Std( Log( C / Ref( C ,-1 ) ) ,10 ) * Sqrt( 365 / 7 )

The above assumes Weekly Data. To utilise this with Daily Data, the MetaStock formula would be:

Std( Log( C / Ref( C,-1) ),10 ) * Sqrt( 365 )

For further interpretation refer to the book "Option Volatility & Pricing," by Sheldon Natenberg.
