Volume, Last, Close and Total number of stocks traded in the interval

Hi, I've some doubt about the data i get in the responses.

Searching in the Field Descriptions document I've understand that the Volume is the sum of the prices of all the transactions, right?

I can't understand which Field Name I've to use in order to get the: Total number of stocks traded in the interval.

Also, just to be sure, the Last value is equal at Close of "normal" OHLC, right?

@veyrejulien,

Volume: this is not the sum of all prices. It is the total traded volume, i.e. the total number of shares (or lots or contracts, depending on the market convention). In other words, this is the field you need to get the Total number of stocks traded in the interval.

Last: yes, this is equal to the Close.
