Do you look at pre- and after-market volumes of precious metals?

Given that volume is an important indicator, I was wondering:

  • [1] Do you look at pre-market and/or after-market volumes at all?
  • [2] If so, what use do you make of those numbers?

I tend to look at these regularly, and noted today that the after-market volume in GDX was considerable. It left me wondering whether you include those numbers in your daily assessment of volume.

Generally, no, we don't take the pre-market and aftermarket volumes into account on a regular basis - only the volume reported during normal market hours.

This type of volume is something that we'd like to research thoroughly in the future. As far as chart analysis is concerned, we believe that using volume and price moves for the most representative part of the session is the way to go. This ensures that we will be able to compare many markets and create ratios because data is available.
