In share trading, volume refers to the total number of shares traded between buyers and sellers in a given day.
When a company’s shares are actively traded, the amounts are usually larger than when the shares are traded relatively rarely.
All types of securities, including shares, bonds, future and option contracts, commodities, and more, can be measured using volume.
