advancing volume - Investment & Finance Definition
A breakdown of the trading volume produced during a trading session on an exchange by those stocks whose prices rose, in contrast to that produced by the stocks that declined, which is the declining volume. By looking at the volume of stocks advancing and comparing it to the volume of those stocks declining, it is possible to determine how strong the market move was. Advancing volume details are published daily in financial newspapers.Webster's New World Finance and Investment Dictionary Copyright © 2010 by Wiley Publishing, Inc., Indianapolis, Indiana.
