Standard Deviation:
The standard deviation is a gauge of the variance, or dispersion, of the market return over its average returns. Thus Standard Deviation gives an insight of total risk. It is worth noting that other tools like beta also signify risk, however not the total risk. Hence standard deviation is a better measure to analyze total risk.
