What's the difference between low and high standard deviation? In financial analysis, deviation refers to the the degree of variance from the average, or mean for a particular investment. The measurement for deviation can be for ROI, volatility, or any number of categories. A low standard deviation indicates close adherence to the mean, where as high standard deviation would be a wider than average variance to the mean.
