# What does "Volume" in scan mean?

If you look at the preconfigured scan "Top 10% Gain NASDAQ", there is a volume condition:
Volume min 5000

What does this condition check? Is this the volume intraday? Meaning that it only shows the volume since open?
Does this mean that during the day, at some point the volume of a stock will go above this number for a stock, and the condition will flip from false to true? Meaning that at open the stocks are mostly zero volume, so there would be very few matches, and during the day there will be more and more.

Or is it yesterday's volume during standard trading hours (excluding pre/post market)?

That's is the volume of whatever aggregation you are using.

The scan is using 1 day. So does it mean that every morning at market open the daily volume is zero for all the stocks, so the scan will return an empty result?
