Volume can be the key to understanding what is relly happening in the stock market. Volume is a dynamic aspect of the market, reflective of supply and demand, and thus crowd behaviour. This work gives a complete explanation of volume and how it can be used to trade more effectively. It shows that volume behaviour and changes can provide important clues to price movement, in direct contrast to such established theories as random walk and efficient markets that state that price is essentially unpredictable. The book explains how volume discloses the amount and type of interest in a stock. By examining and understanding the dynamics of volume, the trader can pinpoint the rise, climax and fall of the activity of market participants (behavioural finance), which provides an extremely reliable indicator of price reversal in real time. Knowing this helps the trader get out near stock or market tops and buy near stock or market bottoms.
