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.

The current ratio of 1.1 is mainly used to give an idea of a company’s ability to pay back its liabilities (debt and accounts payable) with its assets (cash, marketable securities, inventory, accounts receivable). As such, current ratio can be used to make a rough estimate of a company’s financial health. The quick ratio of 0.8 is a measure of how well a company can meet its short-term financial liabilities with quick assets (cash and cash equivalents, short-term marketable securities, and accounts receivable). The higher the ratio, the more financially secure a company is in the short term. A common rule of thumb is that companies with a quick ratio of greater than 1.0 are sufficiently able to meet their short-term liabilities.

The long term debt/equity shows a value of 0.73 with a total debt/equity of 0.76. It gives the investors the idea on the company’s financial leverage, measured by apportioning total liabilities by its stockholders equity. It also illustrates how much debt the corporation is using to finance its assets in relation to the value represented in shareholders’ equity.

Trend Following Tool:

Moving averages are usually a trend following tool. As they are a lagging indicator, they can tell us that a trend has started only after it already happens. The closing price is considered the most important price level of the trading day and is the figure most commonly used in calculating a moving average. A midpoint can also be used. Some technical analysts use an average of the high, low and closing prices. Price bands can also be created by averaging the high and low prices separately.

It goes without saying that investors should not rely solely on any one technique. However, applying moving-average strategies in conjunction with portfolio diversification and prudent money management may reduce one’s risk substantially.
