As it moves up and down volume adds up. When volume rises, it means lots of participants are actively selling and buying currencies. When volume spikes at certain price level, traders know that there was lots of interest shown by traders to that price level. If there is a lot of interest, it means the level is an important one. This simple observation of a volume indicator allows identify important Support and Resistance levels, which would certainly play significant role in the future.
Where Volume spikes are distinctively extreme larger than any historical spikes around — Climax Volume — traders should look for clues from the price itself. Single volume spikes only bring price to a halt. A lot of stand-alone average volume spikes occur during fundamental economic announcements on daily basis. News can cause spike in volume for a single day and then volume disappears again.
Reversals, however, happen not over one day but a series of days. If higher than average volume stays on the market for several to many days a huge volume spike — volume climax — will crown a point of market reversal. Volume indicator helps to validate all kinds of breakouts. When market is consolidating on a low volume, a sudden pick up in volume would signify that a breakout is due. Breakout occurring on rising volume is a valid breakout, while a breakout that caused no interest from traders as it is happening on a low volume is more likely a false one.
Buyers seem to be going active. Correction came — volume drops, no one is interested in Selling the pair — confirmation of a healthy volume. Exhaustion gap is seen on the chart, followed by a doji candle with a spike in volume — a highlight of a market turning point. Market ends trading on a lower volume. Even Sunday was busier than usual.
The new week market begins with an attempt to rise higher, however volume suggests that the interest to the upper side is much lower. A pause on week 21 with a sharp rise in price is met by even higher volume on week A single day volume spike on a low or average volume is considered high when volume bar exceeds 50 MA of volume 3 times. When high volume stretches over several days span, then volume must 2 times exceed 50 MA for 2 days in a row.
How does this indicator determine volume? Does it require a specific data provider? Can Forex Volume really be determined from a single bank data source? It is impossible to measure the exact volume in Forex, since the Forex market is decentralized.
The analysis is good. Again does it work only on MT4 platform alone? It works on all platforms. With MACD it's totally different. MACD shows a difference in between 2 moving averages, it's not the same as measuring Volume. On MT4 you have the standard Volume indicator built in.
To add it to the chart: Right click on the chart, 2. Go to properties 3. Choose Tab called "Common" 4. Find the line that says "Show Volumes" and activate it. Also, there I have 2 custom Volume indicators colored and with an average line: Example if its green bar it present the volume is increasing and red is represent volume is decreasing, but how about the yellowgreen and orange bar represent?
I am confuse for the color meaning. Please explain more on the color I see no correlation with the downtrend at all.
