Here is the TMX trading data showing declines in volume, transactions, value year on year, month to month, year to date. As I have pointed out in the past lower volumes= lower stock price volatility= stock prices drifting lower as we head to summer doldrums. I consider a junior any stock without any production revenue Note the lower index value as well.
