A stock's average daily trading volume is the average number of shares traded on a particular stock exchange on a daily basis. It represents the total volume of shares traded over a specific period of time, usually calculated over a 30-day period. Average daily trading volume provides insights into the liquidity and level of investor interest in a particular stock.

A higher average daily trading volume typically indicates greater liquidity, meaning there are more buyers and sellers actively trading the stock. Stocks with higher trading volume are generally considered more desirable by investors because they offer easier and faster execution of trades and narrower bid-ask spreads.


On the other hand, stocks with lower average daily trading volumes may be less liquid and may experience wider bid-ask spreads, making it more difficult for investors to enter or exit positions.


Average daily trading volume varies significantly across stocks and can range from a few thousand shares to millions of shares for highly traded stocks. It is essential for investors to consider the volume when making investment decisions, as it can provide insights into the stock's stability, market interest, and potential price movements.
