What are the best technical indicators for volatile stocks?

Hello Benjamin,

The top 3 market indicators used to gauge volatility are the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), the Average True range (ATR), and Bollinger Bands.

VIX is an indicator that tracks volatility that’s priced in a strip of S&P 500 Index options.


ATR refers to a chart indicator that showcases the daily trading range of a stock or a commodity, where high readings indicate high volatility.

Bollinger Bands is another technical analysis tool that can track volatility, particularly helpful in times of quiet and explosive trading.
