Hi Lancelot,

I see in your post and your video that you are successfully using volume and increase of volume as part of your trading system. But based on my observations I've always find that the most dynamic part of a trend is always in thin volume. To illustrate this you can see in the chart below that shows a 200 ticks intraday down trend (TFLOW bar 10 ticks range) that large volumes can be find during consolidation and at the end of the trend (for TFLOW the "fat and bright" bars = big volume and thin and dark one = small volume).
Volume is not a part of my system even if I know that I'm certainly missing an interesting piece of information but I'm confused because what I see contradict what I've always read about volume ? For me big volume = danger and potential reversal or end of trend while small volume with big price change = nice opportunity and higher probability of profit ?

Thanks in advance for your insights and opinions.

Regards,
Okina

Yes, you are correct that often a large amount of accumulated volume can occur at the end of a trend. When I talk about volume..I am referring to looking for changes that are happening in almost real time.
For example, if I look at 1 minute or 5 minute timeframes for volume and see a fairly big reading, that is basically telling me that there was a lot of buying in selling in that timeframe. So, it's past tense...It doesn't mean much more than the fact that 5 minutes ago, a lot of volume came in. Does it mean more will continue to happen? Who knows?
I am looking more at changes in immediate order flow to be used to possibly confirm a setup I am about to enter or to help me decide whether to stay in a trade..and ride it out longer.
One of the first signals I get is from my indicator called tick strike. It will register increased order flow..by making an audible ticking sound along with a meter that has bars that light up. The faster the ticking sound and the more bars that light up..signal the increased order flow that is happening at that moment. Now just because it ticks and lights up isn't enough reason to take a trade..there can be a quick flurry and then nothing happens ..but if it continues strongly..there is usually some strong price movement. For example, yesterday when TF was crashing along with the Dow, the Tick Strike sounded like a machine gun and all the bars were flashing and lit up.
I also can see volume accumulating on a 10 second chart...You have to be able to read it..like what is called Tape Reading...but it does give some hints.
So the bottom line is I am looking for changes in volume that are happening in the moment..not so much what happened 5 minutes ago.

Agreed. The 10 second volume chart helps me tremendouslyt o confirm an entry. What happened 5 minutes ago is meaningless imo, when working with a tight stop.

Not loving this price action...a bit chaotic...I may stop with my 30 ticks up for the day. Have to do a few things anyhow.

hi lance thanks for ur posting can u tell what is black moving ave line?

It is just part of the Logical Forex Charts...I'm not sure what the exact parameters are..I just know that it helps me spot good entries.

Here's a few scalps today. Up about 30 ticks so far..We are getting some strong moves up..I probably should be holding for bigger targets today.
