The list of stocks below is a list of actively traded stocks on the stock market trading session of October 13, 2010. Why do we pay attention to stocks from this list? (Particularly on a day like today when the stock market is trading close to last April 2010 highs). It is not to trade them or to invest in them, but rather to develop insight about the rest of the stock market. These stocks are liquid which can render them a useful stock vehicle for stock market professionals who look for liquidity to for instance hedge their portfolios . Actively traded stocks can also be stock vehicles where algorithmic trading and robotic trading be implemented. Since these robots follow logic and parameters implemented by stock traders and stock investors with significant capital, analyzing the trading tape of these stocks might be useful in getting clues about the intention of smart bigger money operating in the stock market. Stock volume analysis skills and tools can be useful in this regard.
