Total debt is a measurement that is important in fundamental analysis. As the title states, total debt would be all debts, such as bonds, loans, and anything the company owes money on. If a company has debt, you want to see that the debt is being used wisely and that the company is not highly leveraged, meaning if they slow down in sales, it could become an issue with repayments.

Using as much data as you can may not be the best, so rather you should find a few that help narrow your decision making progress. Variance is the spread or difference between the data points in your chosen data set. You could look at variance if you are looking for the probability of a distribution happening. In investing and trading, you want to give yourself the best possible edge and increasing the probability of profitability.
