A stock is trading on high volume if it is trading more right now than it normally trades at this time of day.
Stocks trading on high volume often offer the most trading opportunities. Our volume confirmed alerts work best with stocks trading on high volume. Our unconfirmed alerts are sometimes more appropriate on stocks trading on low volume.
Users can filter alerts to see only stocks trading on high volume. To do this, set the “Min Current Volume” filter to a value greater than 1. Alternatively, users can create an alert window containing only stocks trading on low volume. To do this, set the “Max Current Volume” filter to a value less than 1.
