New Record in Daily Trading Volume for SLV
Another record set today in volume of shares traded and percent of outstanding shares traded in a single day.
Chart refresher, the right hand axis is shares outstanding (blue area and blue numbers on right axis), the left axis is percent of the outstanding shares traded on a particular day (red line and red numbers on left axis). The average line is the arithmetic average of all days for period covered (green), and the monthly MA line is a moving average of 22 trading days (orange).
Edit: adding a somewhat longer view of the same dataset where there appears to be a distinct change in the volume traded as the price ramp got underway in September, 2010.
