HV can be used to assess by how much the price of a security shifts from its average value. In markets where a predominant trend exists, provides an overview of the extent to which traded prices may have deviated from a central or moving average price. In smooth markets with a strong predominant trend, low levels can be expected even though prices may fluctuate drastically as time passes.
