Application:$Volume (1% Price change) = LiqR * Price

Example #1: (1% price change per $1,000 trade)
Liquidity Ratio = LiqR = 100
Price = $10.00
$Volume (1% Price change) = 100 * $10.00 = $1000.00
 
Example #2 (@ average LiqR, Price, ShVol)
LR = 460
Price - $15.00
Avg Trading Share Volume Last Month = ShVol = 105,039
$Vol = 105,039 * $15.00 = 1,575,585
$Volume (1% Price change) = 460 * $15.00 = $6,900.00

Liquidity Ratio data provided by www.Smartmoney.com Definition:
"This ratio is a measure of how much dollar volume is required to move a stock's
price up or down by one percentage point. A high ratio indicates a stock that requires
relatively heavy trading to move its price. A low liquidity ratio indicates a stock 
that moves on relatively light volume. The ratio is calculated by adding the daily
percentage changes of a stock's closing price for each trading day of the month.
Then the total dollar volume for the month is divided by this total percentage change
figure."
