Market Statistics

Frequently Updated Real-Time Market Statistics

  • $TICK: NYSE TICK. $TICK is defined as the number of stocks that traded at a higher price compared to the previous trade minus the number of stocks that traded at a lower price compared to the previous trade, on the NYSE. For example, if $TICK reads +500, then there are 500 more stocks on the NYSE trading higher than there are trading lower. If $TICK reads -500, this means 500 more stocks are trading lower than are trading higher.
  • $TRIN: $TRIN is defined as the number of NYSE advancing stocks minus NYSE declining stocks divided by NYSE advancing volume minus NYSE declining volume. $TRIN = ($NSHU - $NSHD) / ($NVLU - $NVLD)
  • $NSHF: NYSE Advancing stocks minus NYSE Declining stocks.
  • $NSHU: NYSE number of stocks with prices increasing compared to their previous closing value.

  • $NVLU: NYSE combined volume of stocks with prices increasing compared to their previous closing value.
  • $NVLD: NYSE combined volume of stocks with prices decreasing compared to their previous closing value.
  • $NSHR: NYSE advancing issues divided by NYSE declining issue. This is a ratio.
  • $NVLR: Ratio of NYSE advancing volume divided by NYSE declining volume (volume in millions)
    Note: Barchart uses the total volume of shares traded on the NYSE to calculate the share values. Some other sources use only the shares traded through NYSE itself to calculate the share values.
