The weekly volume is the average of the 5 days of the volume during the
week. </I.

I guess I disagree that it makes sense. especially when not noted in an obvious way.

That makes two things about "weekly" that I do not like. One is that it is not "weekly", but instead is the last 5 days. Second is that the volume now is not the volume for the week, but is the average for the last 5 days.

This just means that I have to go elsewhere to stable weekly charts, as the TC-2000 weeklies change every day.

It is appropriate for the last week to change, as it is still growing, but weeks in the past should be stable. Or, at least I should have an option to see a real "Weekly" as well as the "5 day".
