Waoo here I found some steps of how to calculate the volatility in excel.

1. You need the closing data of the underlying from which you want to calculate the volatility. I have used Yahoo finance (free) to get them and pass them to Excel.

2. You have to calculate the natural logarithm of the daily yields obtained with the closing data and the square of those logarithms.

3. You have to get the average of the logarithms to be able to later calculate the mean deviation to the square of each value.

4. Finally calculate the average of the mean deviations squared and make its root and you are already a single step to get the volatility of the underlying.

I hope this information can serve you.

Is there a source for this or it's your own method?

Well, these are three indicators that I can recommend:

Bollinger Bands

ATR Average True Range

Envelopes

Of course, these three main indicators that I mention are tools of technical analysis that are to be used together, since they will give us greater security when opening or closing a position, minimizing risks of confusing tendencies and being able to discard false alarms by comparison Between one or the other measuring instrument.

You may get thousands of trading indicators in this case, but they are too late! Whatever, I have seen Price Action trading strategy is very useful trading strategy, I get market trend status, flow rate with Forex market momentum all of info by using Price Action trading strategy here! Yes, I rely on my own trading knowledge not on any technical tool!
