Is there a way to obtain the historical volatility of a stock from the bloomberg API? I would be looking for the data in the HVT table. Actually 3-months historical volatility from now would be enough.
I know there are functions to get the implied volatility for options (using IVOL_LAST_RT for example) but that is not what I am looking for.
I could also just get the day opening and closing ticks from the terminal and then calculate the historical volatility, but I am trying to avoid this step.
