Breadth and Volume, improving but . . .

Thursday, September 21, 2006 | 09:00 AM

We saw a nice increase in both breadth and volume yesterday. NYSE volume was 1.6B, and the only hair on the day was Nasdaq volume. Oracle -- a stock I mentioned liking on a few shows this summer -- was nearly 20% of the Nasdaq total volume.

Given the good numbers from ORCL, I guess we shouldn't be surprised at them trading at 5 to 10X normal volume; But  without ORCL, the Nasdaq would have traded less than a billion shares Wednesday -- thats hardly all that impressive.

Interesting concept Barry - volume (ex-software volume). We're surely at the top - right? Or near the top?
