A quote from nasdaq highlights the importance of a stock's volume when it is unusual "Seeing today's unusual volume on a stock is like seeing people standing in line overnight to buy the latest and greatest gadget or must-have item. Unusual volume tells you something important is going on with a stock, and you should pay attention"

Below is a list of stocks with unusual volume for the stock market trading session of October 15, 2010. Like any stocks, there can be stock gainers and stock losers with unusual volume.

The text in the above quote seems to be aimed at rising stocks. Unusual volume for loser stocks has a different meaning, particularly if the stock market is rising, while the losing stock is down with unusual volume.

Today's date is October 15, 2010.
