Standard Deviation

A measure of dispersion of a set of data from their mean. The more spread apart the data is, the higher the "deviation". In statistics is can also be calculated as the square root of the variance A.

Volatile price would have a high standard deviation. In mutual funds, the standard deviation tells us how much the return on the fund is "deviating" from the expected normal returns.
