Huge Volume spike, with no price movement

I've seen this situation a few times now, where a stock will see a huge surge in volume perhaps 300-400% more than the daily average volume for that day. But price doesn't move at all or very little.

How is the supply suddenly coming into the market to meet the demand. How are all the buy or sell orders being matched with all the buyers and sellers instantly as to not create any imbalance and thus movement in price.

Big buyer agrees with the big seller to not move the price, and so it didn't move. Supply and demand is for the little people. Big fishes have their own rules.

Continuing in this way, exchanges are not for big players.. Pay commissions, fees etc.
There should be something else, explaining this but I don't really know.
TS could you please tell the stock and time when its happened. Want to investigate this as well.

Precisely! The big brokers shuffling the stock precisely agree to keep it still thus market impact does not happen. Could be aggressive HFT liquidity provision, normally price will move with it. Well if you trading penny stocks, then that explains everything.
