    How would I define the difference volatility between these 2 different types of trends ?

    The first one is moving in a tight upward range all the way from the beginning to the end. The second one has a considerable amount of volatility at the beginning and then begins to regain a little composure toward the end.

    Any suggestions on how I could compare several trends like this at various points along the way to identify which one is the least volatile ?
