Historical Volatility is ideal for anyone needing current volatility values.

This app pulls historical data from Yahoo! Finance (USA) and calculates:

  • 10-day annualized volatility
  • 30-day annualized volatility
  • 100-day annualized volatility
Additionally, a graph tracking the 10-day annualized volatility over the last 100 trading days is provided. This app is fast, accurate, and simple to use - just enter the ticker symbol and go!

Historical Volatility was written under the supervision of a highly trained finance professional. This app is a tool that will give you the insight needed to implement your own option, hedging, or VaR strategies. Give yourself an edge by getting this app!

Please Note: This app requires access to the internet (WiFi or 3G) to acquire data. This app is not affiliated with Yahoo! or Yahoo! Finance.

** Currently, data cannot be downloaded for the Dow Jones industrial Average (symbol ^DJI) because Yahoo! is no longer licensed to provide downloads for the Dow Jones Index data. However, you can use the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average (symbol DIA) as an excellent proxy for ^DJI because its volatility is nearly identical. **
