Trading Volume

The measure how many trades take place for a security or on an exchange on a given trading day. A high trading volume is an indicator of a high level of interest in a security at its current price. It is an especially important tool in technical analysis, in which trading volume is used to determine the strength of a market indicator. For example, a price rise on heavy trading volume indicates that that price rise is a true indicator, while a technical analyst likely would be more skeptical of the same rise on lighter trading volume. The method for determining trading volume is called volume counting. In the United States, the SEC determines the methodology of volume counting. Trading volume is often simply called volume.
