on these certain stocks ( see attached screenshot ) ?

I like to look at Barchart.com at the end of each day, to narrow down the most highly traded stocks per Volume for that day.

At almost everyday , the same stocks are always at the top of the list.... BAC, YHOO, AAPL, JCP, SIRI, etc..

Just was wondering if someone could shed some light as to why these certain stocks are on top of the most traded Volume on a per day basis

Thanks for any insght

To answer your question, the reason you see a lot of the same stocks is that many are based on indexes or sectors, which are very popular to trade. Individual company stocks come and go in favor so you will see them appear and leave these lists sometimes, but they don't always change that often. Some stocks become popular with momentum traders but after a while the traders move on to another momentum stock to focus on so the crowd will leave the original stock, taking their volume with it.

Personally, I recommend to not just look at volume. 1,000 shares of a $5 stock is different from 1,000 shares of a $1,000 stock. You need to look at how much money is moving in and out of each market. Unfortunately, most retail screening tools only consider number of shares. Attached is a spreadsheet of today's most liquid stocks, according to the following definition

liquidity = 20-day average volume * 20-day average price

hi Shodson,
thank you for clearing that up

I use Barchart.com at the close of each day, to narrow down the stocks that traded as......
1. Volume Leaders
and
2. Price Volume

I will sometimes use the charts from Barchart to quickly scan these specific stocks for setups via the charts that I am looking for ( off the Daily, Weekly, Monthly ) all set to Candlesticks

But, I actually like scanning through the charts on these stocks via FINVIZ.com ,
as I can look at 15 - 20 on a single page, and quickly scan through and see if anything from one of these stocks, via the charts " Jumps out at me " for a trade

May I ask please, where I could find the stocks that are most Liquid, as you have attached in the spreadsheet?

Thanks for your help

I guess Barchart's "Price Volume" is similar to my measure but I'm using a smoothing average vs just looking at the previous day's volume and price. Also, the Barchart version doesn't intermix ETFs and stocks.

Yeah, I figure using the Price Volume is as close to a " Free " scan of stocks trading for the given day with the most liquidity

I'll copy and paste all stocks listed under Price Volume and Volume Leaders, and paste them into a watchlist on TorS platform, to quickly scan and look for any possible setups.
