Does volatility of a particular market have any correlation with its trendiness? Does increased volatility result in more trends or choppy markets? Any insight, tips, thoughts, or comments on the relationship between volatility and trend will be welcome.—rizwanuk

One of my concerns is that most people don’t truly understand implied volatility (as reflected in the VIX, for example) vs. historical volatility. When compared to one another, the two actually show the trending direction, if not the magnitude (gammas) of the move. Due to basic math, as markets trend up or down, volatility goes up. The opposite is true when markets stabilize or become choppy, and implied volatility goes down.
