Will The Trading Volume Ever Return

|Includes: SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY)

 If you look at the chart below you will see that the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average Trust(NYSE:DIA) will trade just about 4.5 million shares today. This is terrible volume when you consider that the DIA average over 8 million shares in August 2010 which is considered the lightest trading month of the year. The winter season which is what we are currently in is supposed to be the heaviest trading volume of the year. Thank goodness that the banks continue to buy the market or we may not have any volume.
