Most Volatiles in 2015

Generally, when events can be predicted (eg. wars, controversy, and sports) they have the potential to influence prices. When these events are anticipated, investors can buy and sell entity shares to make a profit. This is attributed to the standard deviation of entities that is used to calculate volatility. Public opinion is important in ExtZy because public opinion influences the standard deviation of an entity which impacts volatility. Below, the table characterizes the entities that have been affected largely by public opinion resulting in high standard deviations and therefore represent the most volatile entities in 2015.
