Breadth / Breadth Ratio

The ratio is found by dividing the volume in up stocks by the volume in down stocks for a given time (daily, weekly, etc) 


For Example


If 30 million shares are moving up while 10 million shares are moving down, the ratio is 3:1. The higher the ratio of up to down and the more the ratio increases in that direction over time, the more bullish the market.
