Hi everyone, just joined, and posting my first question! I don't understand how the advancing issues and declining issues work, as well as the Adv-Dec differences. Is it just based on volume, or does it mean something else? Any insight would be great, thank you!

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

The Advance / Decline Line (A/D Line) measures how many stocks are up on the day versus those that are down on the day (as compared to yesterday’s close).

The formula is: Advancing stocks - Declining stocks = Advance / Decline number. The A/D line shows how this number is changing over time.

The S&P 500 A/D Line ranges between +500 (all S&P 500 stocks are up on the day) to -500 (all S&P 500 stocks are down on the day).

The NYSE A/D line can range up to somewhere around +3000 down to -3000. The exact number will change based on how many stocks are currently listed on the NYSE.

There are a few uses of the A/D Line. The one i think is most useful is seeing divergence when compared to /ES and /YM.
