Volume Indicator

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.

No more support, where does it land. I don't care, personally.

I'm out. We pierced the only support that mattered. Watch out for sharks... the whales have left the building. And once again, they say, thank you for your buy support as they sold off their bags of holding. Here that noise? It's the sound of an overinflated, no-intrinsic-value ponzi, deflating. It's even dropping as I'm writing this ...

We've broken down the hourly range this night.This is a chess to the american longs. Who will hold a long position into the holiday? I think most of the funds and the big players will not. So when volume comes in price will break below the 200 SMA. If many of the banks are thinking the same we shouldn't be surprised if the "Contract Dumper" who sold gold 2 weeks ...
