One of the factors we consider when deciding to trade (or not to trade) is volatility.

There are many ways to measure volatility, and they invariably use the size of bars on the chart.

I use daily bars, so I pay attention to the size of daily bars. I ignore minute bars, weekly bars, or any other size bars.

For past couple of weeks, the symbols have been too volatile to trade most of the time. That is to be expected this time of year, and given the current events now going on.
