    Low volume means low volume.

    Let me help you with your english comprehension. If I meant it was a low volume day compared to average volume, I would have said, "Today is a low volume day compared to average."

    Saving face? I couldn't care less about what you think. I make my decisions based on fundamentals. Not on the words of someone on an internet forum.

    • Within the investing world, low volume means low compared to average volume unless otherwise stated. Try going to Investopedia & search for "low volume pullback". The fact it doesn't have to be labeled "lower than average volume pullback" should be hint enough, but I think you may need special help.

      You didn't state you were comparing the volume to anything other than average until you realized you were wrong, then you tried to make a comparison to "down days".

      When that was wrong, you changed it to just 3 down days (citing they were the highest percentage drops).

      Now that volume finished above one of those three, you're stuck clinging to just the highest one.

      Just as I predicted you would.

      You've done nothing but back track and redefine terms, even going so far as to now outright ignore your earlier posts. If that's not just an attempt to save face on an internet forum, and that's normal behavior for you, than I feel bad for you.
