## Description

Price volatility is used to describe price fluctuations of an asset.

If we use and to denote mean and standard deviation of asset prices,
then we define **Price Volatility** as:

Price volatility metrics are available for 4 different time periods

`price_volatility_1d`

- Price volatility for the last day`price_volatility_1w`

- Price volatility for the last 7 days`price_volatility_2w`

- Price volatility for the last 14 days`price_volatility_4w`

- Price volatility for the last 28 days

Examples of use cases:

- Traders seek volatile assets because they move more quickly and have larger price changes. Those price changes are both upward and downward. Keeping this in mind, a trader needs effective risk management in order to trade volatile assets profitably.
- On the other hand, some traders seek exposure to the assets that are the least volatile, and they might use this metric to identify those assets.
