I have tried VOLATILITY_90D to get the VOLATILITY of stocks from Bloomberg in excel. However, I found that I cannot get the VOLATILITY of some Stocks,such as 330 HK, 3800 HK.

Could anyone help me to solve it? Thank you very much

  • $\begingroup$ It sounds like the kind of problem that Bloomberg Support (F1 F1) would be able to address more efficiently. $\endgroup$ – Dimitri Vulis Sep 27 at 14:07
  • $\begingroup$ as a side note, i would point out that the bbg api is incredibly inconsistent - fields will have data arbitrarily for some tickers and not for others i would not be surprised if you have to use a different field to get the volatility for some tickers. you can get an idea of it by looking at the FLDS page and searching for volatility, and then looking at which tickers have values for which volatility flds and which flds are populated, and then compare it to another. $\endgroup$ – will Sep 27 at 14:23
  • $\begingroup$ (Sorry I don't have Bloomberg Anywhere handy to try what the error is) Both of your examples GCL-Poly and Esprit Holdings seem to have many months of historical prices, so if the API won't give you VOLATILITY_nD, then you should be able to compute it yourself from raw data, and trust yourself more than Bloomberg. $\endgroup$ – Dimitri Vulis Sep 27 at 15:11

thank you for your help and I have asked the help desk from Bloomberg and solve it. The problem is I have spelled the volatility wrongly to volativity.

Again, thank you for all your help.
