Relative volume is one of the most important fields that we track in the alert server. Relative volume compares the stock's volume right now to the volume that it normally has at this moment and time. This is a very precise value that we update continuously. Relative volume is both a column and a filter. In this window, I am filtering my stocks so that I only see stocks which are trading on normal volume. I've defined normal volume as between 75% of average and 150% of average. This window shows the same alerts except it's only showing stock on high volume. I've defined that as stocks which are trading more than 50% more than normal. AGL, for example, is trading 72% more volume than it normally does at 11:18 in the morning. This field is sometimes blank. In these examples we are looking at indexes and not stocks. These indexes do not have any volume associated with them, so relative volume doesn't make any sense. Also, in the morning the relative volume column will be empty before the stock opens. We only track this field after the open. The same thing applies to the filter as to the column. An index will never appear in one of these two windows because it has no relative volume. It can't meet my criteria.
