This item downloads several trading volume numbers released daily by the New York Stock Exchange. A total of 10 numbers are downloaded from the exchange website and are associated with different ticker symbols. These NYSE Statistics are updated and released daily.
NYSE volume can divided into several groups or categories. For example, buy and sell transactions that involve volume higher than 10000 shares are part of what is called block trades. NYSE odd-lot volume is another example that is calculated by taking the sum of the volume of all filled orders with less 100 shares.
Here is the list of all these symbols:
^Total_Shares: This symbol contains the daily total number of shares traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE Volume)
^Share_Trades_0_2000: This symbol contains the daily number of transactions or trades with less than 2000 shares
^Share_Trades_2001_5000: Contains the daily number of trades with a quantity of shares between 2001 and 5000 shares
^Share_Trades_5001_10000: Contains the daily number of trades with a quantity of shares between 5001 and 10000 shares
^Block_Trades_+10000: This symbol gets the daily number of block trades, which are trades with more than 10,000 shares of a stock
^Round-Lot_Volume: This symbol gets the Round-lot volume. A Round-Lot is equal to 100 shares
^Odd-Lot_Volume: This symbol gets the Odd-Lot volume. An Odd-Lot is usually a number lower than 100 shares of a stock
^SDOT_Short_Sales: This symbol contains the total share volume of SuperDot sell short order executions. SuperDot is an electronic system used to place orders for NYSE listed stocks. SuperDOT system stands for Super Designated Order Turnaround System
^SDOT_Buy: This symbol contains the total share volume of SuperDot Buy order executions
^SDOT_Sell: This symbol contains the total share volume of SuperDot Sell order executions

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
