Volume points to the amount of a financial instrument that was traded over a specified period of time. It can refer to shares, contracts or lots. The data is tracked and provided by market exchanges. It is one of the oldest and most popular indicators and is usually plotted in colored columns, green for up volume and red for down volume, with a moving average. It is one of the few indicators that is not based on price. High volume points to a high interest in an instrument at its current price and vice versa.

A sudden increase in trading volume points to a increased probability of the price changing. News events are typical moments when volume can increase. Strong trending moves go hand in hand with an increased trading volume. It can therefore be seen as a measure of strength. One would expect high buying volume at a support level and high selling volume at a resistance level. There are several ways to use volume in a trading strategy and most traders use it in combination with other analysis techniques.

JSE:DSY Discovery showing strength

Discovery (JSE:DSY) is showing strong leadership as compared the JSE Wyckoff Wave (10 Core JSE stocks). The OBV is indicating bullish pressure. The stock has broken the 200 Day SMA, is above the Monthly and Yearly Pivot Points and is now pushing up against a significant volume cluster at 180 formed by the consolidation at the previous highs. On Thursday there was ...

NZD/CAD short from 0. 8767

This trade idea is based mostly on a Trend setup. There is a strong downtrend on the NZD/CAD right now. In such case, I look for volume clusters that were created within the downtrend. Such a volume cluster as around 0.8767 shows us that sellers were adding to their selling positions there and that they continued pushing the price lower from this area. When the ...

USD/JPY short from 110.88

There was a significant volume accumulation right before the strong selling activity started. This tells us that strong sellers were building up their positions there and that they pushed the price lower afterward. When the price makes it back to this area again, I expect that those sellers will be defending their positions and that they will push the price lower ...

AUD/USD short from 0.7388

There was a very long rotation on the AUD/USD. Now it seems that the price finally broke out of the channel into a sell-off. If this selling wasn’t just a false break-out then it indicates that there was a lot of short positions accumulated within the rotation area. Most of them at 0.7388 – this is the POC of the rotation. When the price makes a pullback to this ...

Chaikin Volume Indicator Strategy EURUSD 1H

The reason why Chaikin Money Flow is the best volume indicator and it’s better than the classical volume indicator is because it measures institutional accumulation-distribution. Typically on a rally the Chaikin volume indicator should be above the zero line. Conversely, on sell-offs the Chaikin volume indicator should be below the zero line. Step #1: Chaikin ...

EUR/GBP long from 0.885

Another very nice volume accumulation setup is currently on the EUR/GBP. What I like about this long level is the aggressive rejection of lower prices which occurred right before the start of the trend. This shows the strength of buyers who rejected lower prices and pushed the price upwards. Those buyers were accumulating their positions in the rotation area ...

On the weekly chart we are heading for the lowest volume week since February 2017 where the price closed at ~1350. I don't have any price targets for you or anything like that, but I just wanted to point out the apparent weakness of the current "rally". Please do your own analysis to find entry/exits. Have a wonderful weekend!
