Question by Curious: Why is the stock trading volume highest in the first and last 15 minutes?
The stock trading volume seems to shoot up several times especially during the last few minutes of the day. Why is this?
Answer by Whitey
People have had overnight to review stocks so for good deals, they usually want to get in early. In the last 15 minutes, sometimes people want rid of stocks before they go home, so put them lower and the bargain seekers take them.
