Take a look at the negative divergence on the volume peaks earlier on in the day... See also the conditions leading up to the breakout . The down tick volumes started decreasing and the up tick volumes started increasing.... Getting onboard during the first candle that broke 880 is the trick. You definitely need a "seconds ticker " to do this. The previous tick at 15:30 just made 1000 for the minute. Watching the seconds tick, you would have noticed that at 30 seconds the volume was 1500, indicating the strength.Time to jump on board.
One of the keys to volume analysis is that the big moves come when the volume breaks 2000/min. Another is recognising the uptick increase and down tick decrease, and vice verca.
There was a lot of discussion in the chat room this afternoon about this. Clearly, the charts do not distinguish between buyers and sellers in one tick. Rather , the volume is portrayed as BLUE if the tick is up and RED if the tick is down. I find this a more simplistic approach and seems to present some sensible rules that one can follow. I'm sure that if the volumes were separated into buyers and sellers per tick, the picture may well become "overloaded".
Logically, if the volume of buyers goes up, then so must the price. It's all a matter of balance of power...... and to that end TA applies equally well to the changes in volume per tick as it does to the price.
