Volume analysis attempts to delve deep inside the market trends to help identify shifts within the markets.  Investing with Volume Analysis: Identify, Follow, and Profit from Trendspresents an enlightened perspective on the role of volume, not only in pragmatic terms but also in terms of apprehending the underlying rationale of how and why. Award-winning technical analyst Buff Pelz Dormeier teaches state-of-the-art methods for analyzing the relationship of volume to price movements and the evolution of market trends.
