My Intepretation On Volume

After RTH today I hashed a video together with respect to how I use volume. I am not claiming to be an expert at it and I am certainly not claiming to be a master trader. However I believe volume is very important when reading the footprint of the market.

As a side note, when I talk about today's move back to the IBL (that was ultimately rejected) I should have also mentioned Midpoint and VWAP are also important levels to keep an eye on.

I have not covered every single detail here but enough to show what my interpretation of volume is.
