Increasing Volatility Within Uptrend

Note:  The historical stock examples given below are for EDUCATIONAL USE ONLY.  They ARE NOT to be used to make buy/sell decisions in today's market.  For more information, please read the HSR Terms of Use.


Price begins to trade in a more volatile fashion compared to its earlier trend of tight trading.

You can use the rope analogy to better understand this behavior.

At the beginning of a stock's advance, price usually trades tight much like a brand new rope that's tightly wound.

Towards the end of a trend, price trades more erratically like a frayed rope that's unwinding.

Behavior Note:  Using a daily chart may help you more closely zero in on the rise of increased volatility.

What you need to know

Volatility tends to increase at tops and the onset of volatility may give you a warning that a stock is under distribution.
