Daily Average (13-week average)

The average number of shares traded for a stock over a 13-week period. The higher the number of shares traded, the more liquid a stock is. It is believed liquidity can reduce risk since it is easier to move in and out of the position. Average daily volume can also be indicative of investor interest and be used to determine the momentum behind the stock's current trend.
