Volume in Yahoo Finance Historical Prices Data

August 7th, 2021, 4:36 pm

Does anyone know exactly what this Volume field shows?

Does it include block trades?

I understand that it excludes share transfers associated with repos, stock borrowing and lending?

If two banks privately negotiate a deal between themselves, does that deal size affect the Yahoo Finance volume? It seems not to...

I assume it is the number of shares traded on the exchange on that day?

I would be very grateful for any knowledge that anyone can share

Thanks in advance
