Volume is a measure of how much of a given financial asset has been traded in a given period of time. It is a very powerful tool, but it's often overlooked because it is such a simple indicator. Volume information can be found just about anywhere, but few traders or investors know how to use it to increase their profits and minimize risk.

Let me know with ...

ETHBTC: Ethereum acting strong
Ethereum is holding above the recent uptrend's mode, or 'accumulation level'. Despite the downside acceleration of the past few days, and rising volume, sellers are trapped again, and price is back above resistance. If it holds here, and accelerates out of this level, we'll get a second rapid uptrend leg. It could ...

The index keeps creating new highs (Dec-13 and Jan-06) and follow the same uptrend initiated in mid-November. Despite a slowing down in the pace of going upward (illustrated by a divergence with the Momentum indicator), there is no obvious sign today leaning toward a reversal. Furthermore, volume on up days outdoes ...

Hello Traders, Question of the day, purchase put options on bank stocks and if so to do it thru the $XLF or their % largest holding: $JPM ?

Support and resistance Despite leaving the downward trend, the growth of the couple may appear as a temporary reinforcement. The EUR pair can hardly show strong growth even further: the eurozone's economic problems are not solved, stimulus measures do not work, so the EU economy would not be quickly restore. The ...

After the long battle for the Dow20k push finally failed I think we are going to see SPY drop.. it has tested the 227.33 resistance point twice and failed.. We do have a volume dry up at the top here so that is always a sign to me that, a sell of it coming and SPY is likely to drop. Stochastic turned sharply ...
