What causes a stock to be most active? 

In many cases, trade activity increases when there has been a significant change in a stock price. Such a change is usually due to some newsworthy event. A positive earnings report can generate interest in the stock causing the price to rise. Conversely, a negative earnings report can put selling pressure on the stock, causing the price to decline. This increased trading volume can stay in place for a while as other investors jump in for fear of missing out. 

But there are also several other reasons that can make a stock more traded. Here are some examples: 

  1. The market volume might be higher for stocks that are generally more known by the public;  
  2. the stocks with lower price, including the so called “penny-stocks”, might also have a larger trading volume, as more shares need to be exchanged in case of larger transactions with those stocks; 
  3. a high number of free-float shares, meaning the amount of shares readily available on the market for the public also results in higher volume.
