Learn more about Volatility Lab from our Traders' Academy.
Implied Volatility plots the anticipated volatility of the selected stock using the prevailing option premium. See at a glance whether or not implied volatility is relatively high in any given month, possibly caused by expected earnings announcements or uncertainty over possible changes to dividend payments.
The Historical Volatility plots a 30-day reading of both implied and historical volatility against the share price over custom period that you define. A light gray line in the background plots the reading for the underlying share price.
See how your selected stock’s volatility measures up against the volatility of comparable companies in the same industry in the Industry Comparison tab.
With customizable settings and color-coded plots, the Volatility Lab makes it easy to compare and contrast the option market’s views on the volatility of any selected stock over the coming months.
