Volume

To explain it simply, volume is the amount of shares traded in a single period of time. This number is very important. Generally you want a minimum volume of 750 000, but the higher the number the better. This ensures that you will have a chance to sell your stocks when you do decide to sell them. If nobody completes a trade with you, you’ll be stuck with your shares until someone does decide to trade with you. You don’t ever want to be stuck with a stock you don’t want, so it’s very important to make sure that the volume is always high.

That’s all for now, Ben
