Using Relative Volume

Just started looking at relative volume for my intra trading. Not sure if it helps yet just trying it out. Today was very low relative volume all day and was wondering if i was correct in thinking that this usually reduces chances of a break out from a range or key levels.

Not sure if thats one way I could look at it or what other ways I should be approaching it. Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

Very vaguely speaking, a very high relative volume is usually indicative of a reversal.

Like any indicator, simply throwing it on your chart is not going to benefit you at all.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
