When trading options volatility is very important. Experienced traders use volatility to get the best price on the option they are trading. Low Volatility if they are buying, and high volatility if selling. Since SF does not yet have a filter to track Volatility is there an indicator that would give a close approximation?

Would Average True Range help at all? How about making your own: Day Change/Closing Price -- would that help?

Yes, I use my own variable: (atr(20)/close) to measure volatility.

This doesn't help, because when it asks for indicator there is no indicator that says volatility to choose.

Hope I didn't misunderstand your suggestion.

I'll assume that was directed at me rather than StockFetcher.

In addition to the excellent advise others have given, I'll give it another shot.

Chaikin's Volatility
Relative Volatility Index

Or, build you own Volatility indicator. I personally like the one TRO created that counts the number of % gain days over a period of time.

Good luck.
