Is volume a good indicator of price action


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

What indicators do you use to gauge price action?  I basically want to know which markets generally have bigger price swings.  This must be partly dependent on the popularity of the market and how many traders trading.  An overview that doesn't involve measuring the size of individual candles would be useful.

Thanks

I'm trying to decide what makes me pick a market to trade on.  I've been sticking to GBP/US dollar more out of habit than anything but there are markets with considerably lower margin requirement so if the price is moving sufficiently on those why wouldn't i trade those instead..

Thanks

Don't use volume as a criteria :)

Well that's an answer at least :) Its like if you want to compare the rate of price change between markets do i just have to measure between two for a set period of time.  In the longer term there will be differences.  Haven't looked for a while but the DAX had crazy price jumps over last few months.  40-50 points in an hour wouldn't be uncommon.

Candlesticks are pretty good.  Have you read Nison's book?

No I haven't read any books, but I am a fan of heiken ashi candles. Maybe I might actually get somewhere if I actually read some actual books. The internet is 75% **** on this subject.

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
    • Meme coins are cryptocurrencies inspired by internet jokes, like Dogecoin. They're inherently risky due to their extreme price swings. While some meme coins remain purely for fun, others are trying to develop actual uses in gaming or finance. These high-risk, high-reward investments often attract "degenerates" (or "degens") who chase quick profits by jumping into unproven projects without much research.   The potential for massive returns with meme coins can't be ignored, however. Dogecoin's 9800% surge in 2021 exemplifies this. A $100 investment could have turned into a life-changing $9800. This experience highlights the potential regret of focusing solely on "safe" investments with lower potential returns.   Taking inspiration from this, some experienced investors are now allocating a small portion of their portfolio to latest meme coins.one of the latest is Miggles listed on Bitget. This strategy allows them to potentially benefit from future bull runs while limiting their overall risk.
