The most traded stocks reflect investors’ interest whether for buying or selling. The most traded stocks have the maximum trading volumes, therefore, they are the most active ones. The volumes also reflect liquidity of the stock. Higher volumes go hand-in-hand with the price of the stock. A unique thing about Friday’s trade was that the stocks that gained the maximum trading volume were low-priced stocks. Let’s look at some stocks that were the most active on Friday.
