Does Volume Lead the Price ?

Yes there is a chart in real time to follow below. Without a chart it is pointless imho.

My view is that it does  ( volume leading the price) in some instances. Is it a reliable leading indicator volume ? As reliable as the price action on the chart. It requires to be read in conjunction with price at specific turning points.

Lets look at BAP.ASX weekly chart and apply KISS factor to volume. How ? OBV will help us as shown at the bottom window. Before we get to volume, what is the MAJOR TREND of BAP ? Within a MAJOR UPTREND congested /flat MEDIUM TERM PRICE ACTION BEHAVIOUR is on display.What are we seeing/reading from OBV at the bottom window ? A BREAKOUT which is working nicely well before the price. Question now is, will the price follow the foot steps of OBV ? It may and likely it will. Confirmation is a must by the price.

I have shaded a zone with Blue within the larger trading range which is the most dominant short term pattern. In fact, one may take the high and low of the current weekly bar as a reference and wait and see where it closes for further clues. Don’t forget the FOLLOW-THROUGH or lack of it please.

I will leave it at this for now with my BAP analysis continuing taking a medium time horizon view.

Treat the Resistance line as a CREEK and watch out for the SCOUT BOY in case he stages a BIG JUMP in the days/weeks ahead. He must be board stiff in this trading range which has been in effect for well over a year. I am. At least I took some trades with it along the way also.

Will this be another one in the bottom draw ? If I see a MAJOR BREAKOUT yes.

Some of the best trades hide around the edges of the trading ranges as the saying goes…

Disclosure : BAP.ASX is held tightly until it starts misbehaving.
