Volume is a measure of how much a financial asset has been traded over a certain period of time. For stocks, volume is expressed as the number of shares traded. For futures and options, it is the number of contracts that have been traded. Traders use volume to gauge liquidity and combine it with technical indicators to make trading decisions.
Analyzing volume patterns over time can provide insight into the conviction behind the movement of individual stocks and entire markets. This is also true for options traders, as trading volume can indicate the current level of interest in an option. In fact, volume is a key component of technical analysis and is included in several important technical indicators.
