This is the first time I have looked at the volume indicator. It seems much the same as the macd histogram.
Luis Bustamante (1 month ago)
Thank you, really iseful. Do volume indicators update in real time or is it a lagged indicator? Thanks again

So here he is doing a video telling us all how volume can be so beneficial. Yet he doesnt even use it himself! I smell a rat.

Thank you for a nice educative lesson Dave. Would you please elaborate on some specifics about what exactly the tick volume bar represents?? specificaly in currency markets! What kind of amount it shows (volume number)? Thank you!
Trading 212 (3 months ago)
Sergio, please feel free to start a live chat to further elaborate on the topic with a customer care representative - www.trading212.com/en/Contact?startchat.

David I still have a hard time to get the bottomline idea of tick data with relation to currency market. Please explain what shall we consider as a main cause of the incremental price change (e.i. 1 tick)?. Thank you very much for the following explanations )
Trading 212 (3 months ago)
The smallest action counted as price change for a certain trading instrument is considered to be a change in the last digit of its respective price.
Sergio Bokancha (3 months ago)
to be more specific with my question: does it mean that one change in price (i.e. one tick) is equal to 1000 units (1 micro lot) of actual order !?
Trading 212 (3 months ago)
Hi Sergio, the tick volume shows how many times the price has changed for the given time period.

Your videos are by far the clearest and most to the point no fluff that I've seen. As I'm learning to trade. Is the Trading 212 pro platform available for use in the U.S.? Or is it only for ppl living in the UK?
Trading 212 (5 months ago)
Your kind words are very much appreciated. Delighted to see you like the trading app. However, those are the regulations.
Lūmi Zainabu (5 months ago)
Aww :-( . Well thank you for the reply. Do you have a recommended platform that resembles something close to the 212 platform. It looks so clean cut and organized and user friendly. Especially when following along in your videos! Thanks again, keep up the great no fluff content!
Trading 212 (5 months ago)
Hi Lūmi, glad to see you enjoy the videos. Due to the regulations, the US residents are not eligible to use the trading account's Real Money Mode. However, the Practice Money Mode is available without limitations.

Awesome video. I thought my drawing was worst. 😉
Atanas Stoyanov (6 months ago)
How can I pull out the volume indicator on my charts??? How it’s called? I am new. Please help. Thanks.
Trading 212 (6 months ago)
Currently, the volume indicators are available in the web app only.
Atanas Stoyanov (6 months ago)
Trading 212 Is this possible to find at the app? And how should be called?
Trading 212 (6 months ago)
Hi Atanas, simply log in to Trading 212's web app at www.trading212.com, navigate to the Indicators section located in the toolbar above the chart and select your volume indicator of choice.
Alejandro Cabrera (6 months ago)
Hi David, I would like to understand how volumen indicator is calculate in a not centralized market like forex? are Each trading platform calculates it according to its clients? thanks in advance
Trading 212 (6 months ago)
Yes, Alejandro. The volume on Trading 212 is calculated based on the traders using the service.
David Jones (6 months ago)
Hi Alejandro. I think you are correct but I will see if I can get Trading 212 to add a bit more detail.

I've run many correlation studies on ETFs and individual stocks and there is no statistically significant positive correlation between price and volume. In fact, there is a statistically significant inverse correlation between price and volume - as price goes down, volume goes up, and as price goes up, volume goes down. The traditional theory is garbage.
Indresh Rao (1 month ago)
Could you please share your insightful studies with proof?
Rich Holland (6 months ago)
Very enlightening thank you.
DominikBacher (6 months ago)
These guys have a trading platform suited for this century (compared to mt4 and other brokers). And not only that, but david gives outstanding tutorials on trading! Trading 212 is like the Apple of brokers.
Crypto Bandito (6 months ago)
Surely the size of the volume bar will always be the same as size of the candle for that time-frame??
Crypto Bandito (6 months ago)
Thanks
Trading 212 (6 months ago)
Hi Crypto Bandito - the two have different dimensions and are not directly correlated. A big move in price can be done with a lot of volume but the opposite is also true. That's when traders say "large move on thin volume".
Stefan Supra (7 months ago)
What about the candle to volume bar/candle relation ? Meaning when we see a big volume bar/candle but a small candle on the chart we can assume this is a failed breakout for example or a false move to get people on the wrong side on the market. What do you think ?
David Jones (6 months ago)
You do get big moves on thin volume - and small moves on large volume. I don't think every possible combination can be explained so I would never trade just off volume alone but use something else as confirmation. Nothing is 100% correct all the time.
Matthew Barker (7 months ago)
Great video!! Could you do one on the difference between hedging and aggregate trading? What's the difference and how it can help your trading?
Trading 212 (7 months ago)
Hi Matthew, thanks for your suggestion. In the meantime, you can take a look at this brief article on the topic - www.trading212.com/en/trading-modes.
Blooniverse (7 months ago)
David, you're aware of the fact (resp. common assumption) that volumes in the cryptomarket seem to be manipulated to quite a degree, aren't you?
David Jones (6 months ago)
Yes I've read the stories but what can you do? Either not trade it, or just ignore volume and base it all off the price.

Hi, i have to say that Volume is not an Indicator. It is a primary raw data resource, like price action.
Yoda TheCoder (7 months ago)
Thanks Dave. I like your videos and your insight is much appreciated.
