Calculation Methodology: Relative Volume is calculated by taking the ratio between 1-day Volume over the 5-day Volume
  • Relative Volume of 1.5x implies that the 1-day average daily volume was 50% more than the 5-day average daily volume
  • Relative Volume of 0.9x implies that the 1-day average daily volume was 10% less than the 5-day average daily volume
  • How to use this:
  • Breakouts and Breakdowns reflect action where conviction is shown by the market through strength in volume. These can be pivotal moments for a security as the move gathers momentum. Investors often use this to spot trends early
  • Breakouts have high relative volume & high positive performance
  • Breakdowns have high relative volume & low performance

  • Interpretation above is not comprehensive but rather just a starting point of understanding. Experienced market professionals typically use a combination of different datapoints to drive decisions
