Market Breadth is a technical analysis technique that attempts to measure the direction of the broad market by examining the number of companies advancing to the number of companies declining.

A positive market breadth can occur when more companies are moving higher than lower, and suggests that bulls are in control of the momentum, as seen in a Live Trading Room.

Inversely, more declining companies indicate bearish momentum during stock trading.
