What is the units of the Average Volume field in the Fundamental data message (http://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api/docs/Level1FundamentalMessage.cfm
)? is it shares or USD? is it the nominal value or specified in thousands/millions?
This question chimes with a similar recent query on this forum (http://forums.iqfeed.net/index.cfm?page=topic&topicID=5615)
, where it was not clear whether the Common Shares Outstanding field is the nominal value or specified in thousands (the latter, in this case).
I therefore suggest adding a <Units> column to the table in the documentation webpage, to make things clearer to users, for these data fields as well as all the others.
