    Why? Please explain how its "not good" that there is no volume during the last week of August before the last major holiday of the summer when no one is ever around and there is never any volume any other year, why would this one be different? ! Pull your head out of your ass.

    Excluding the Fridays after the last two Thanksgivings, today looks to be the lowest volume since Dec. 31, 2004.

    Interesting . We have a lot of data the end of the week..This should change
     
  7. The week before LD is typically among the slowest volume weeks of the year.
     
  8. Lots of volume on Nasdaq at least according to Yahoo. 711 Trillion shares by their count. :D
     
  9. hahaha, almost as big as Friday's huge NASDAQ volume spike according to BigCharts.com

    Exactly, thats why I'm wondering whats so "not good!" about it. Not only is the week before LD typically very low on volume, we are just coming off of one of the most volatile periods in recent market history, and volatility being mean reverting you would expect that to come in a bit too, which it has..and when volatility comes in..so too does volume. I'm gonna go right out and be sure to be taking in every word of the bullnbearz vids.
