Volume is simply the number of shares traded during a specified time frame (e.g., hour, day, week, month, etc). The analysis of volume is a basic yet very important element of technical analysis. Volume provides clues as to the intensity of a given price move. Low volume levels are characteristic of the indecisive expectations that typically occur during consolidation periods (i.e., periods where prices move sideways in a trading range). Low volume also often occurs during the indecisive period during market bottoms. High volume levels are characteristic of market tops when there is a strong consensus that prices will move higher. High volume levels are also very common at the beginning of new trends (i.e., when prices break out of a trading range). Just before market bottoms, volume will often increase due to panic-driven selling.

Trend Following Tool:
Moving averages are usually a trend following tool. As they are a lagging indicator, they can tell us that a trend has started only after it already happens. The closing price is considered the most important price level of the trading day and is the figure most commonly used in calculating a moving average. A midpoint can also be used. Some technical analysts use an average of the high, low and closing prices. Price bands can also be created by averaging the high and low prices separately.
It goes without saying that investors should not rely solely on any one technique. However, applying moving-average strategies in conjunction with portfolio diversification and prudent money management may reduce one’s risk substantially.
