Also what has happened in the past does not reflect the future movement in price. Thus beta shows very less picture of what may be ahead. Another reason is that the measure of beta is good when it comes to short term trading but it is of no use for long term traders.

Even after some limitations Beta is still very popular among stock traders trading in SnapCash Binary. There are various ways through which you may be able to monitor the volatility like by using technical charts. However one of the most important measures is the risk that the stock holds. Beta insights are still very useful because it lets you know the movement of the stock relative to the market.

Beta is also referred to at times as financial elasticity. Taking the measure of volatility into account helps the trader to make better financial decision. Beta calculation is given by stock broking companies but you can do it yourself too. All that you need is the closing price of the stock and the closing price of the index. You can then calculate the variance and the covariance value using excel sheet and then put that value in the formula.

The growth value of a company is also dependent on beta. Those firms that have a huge growth potential have higher betas in most cases. This is also because growth also calls for risks and uncertainty.

Any firms’ growth is dependent on the new product as well as the expansion that the company aims to do. These involve cash flow and also substantial amount of risk and this thus impacts the beta of the company.
