How to Interpret Volume of Stock?

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!

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

SMA and Trends:

Moving averages are valuable, as they smooth daily fluctuations, allowing the technical analyst to see the underlying trend without being distracted by the small (daily) movements. A rising moving average usually signals an uptrend, while a falling moving average indicates a downtrend.

Some analysts have adopted the following approach, when it comes to relating the SMA with a particular trend: If the close price of a tradable instrument is above some simple moving average, then the trend must be bullish. If the close price is below some simple moving average, then the trend must be bearish. However, choosing a period for trend estimation is a matter of personal preferences. The period of the SMA will depend on one’s trading style and time frame for trading. Thus, choosing the appropriate period comes with experimentation and, of course, experience. Despite that simple moving averages provide help when identifying a trend, they do so after the trend has begun. Therefore, moving averages are lagging indicators, as they are based on past prices.
