How would you suggest to measure the volatility of SPY and DIA and compare changes in the two?
1)look at realized historical volatility over the same time frame
2)look at ATM implied vols
3) GARCH or stochastic vol studies
i am sure there's more
Average True Range
Consider looking at the average true range (pick your time frames, I use 42 days 252 days and 1008 days)
as a percent of previous day's close and establish a ratio of the two.
