    • that's how much of a moron you are. Up on low volume is bearish. If you don't believe me google it jackass. Since the split the stock has traded above average volume once, on a down day. You need to stop hanging around malls little joey. Here I'll make it east for you.

      How to Interpret Volume on a Stock Chart
      39 25 Google +8 14

      The volume on a stock chart is probably the most misunderstood of all technical indicators used by swing traders. There is only a couple of times when it is actually even useful. In fact, you could trade any stock without even looking at it!

      First a definition...

      Stock chart volume is the number of shares traded during a given time period.

      Usually plotted as a histogram under a chart, volume represents the interest level in a stock. If a stock is trading on low volume, then there is not much interest in the stock. But, on the other hand, if a stock is trading on high volume, then there is a lot of interest in the stock.

      Volume simply tells us the emotional excitement (or lack thereof) in a stock.
