The technical indicator in the top blue bar , there is an option to display the volume. Indicates that the volume is : MedlinePlus MedlinePlus " The volume is the number of shares traded at a value for a specified period of time . " MedlinePlus MedlinePlus What does this mean exactly? You mean the number of shares sold or purchased during that day ?

You have the right idea . Indicated as " period " if you use a different scale daily for the stock activity . If you were to use a weekly scale , volume ( shares traded ) would be for the whole week . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Hope this helps
