Intraday - low volume/big bar

Discussion in 'Technical Analysis' started by BA_Trader, Mar 4, 2004.

  1. Can anyone enlighten me on this:

    Typically there is a pretty strong relationship between
    the length of a bar and the amount of volume to make it.

    I am talking about the 5 min time frame here.

    However, sometime you'll see bigtime volume and a puny little
    bar or a little tiny scrap of volume and a relatively big price move.

    The first case makes sense to me.
    The second case does not. Is it a case where volume lags
    price? wtf? Perhaps it means volume is so dry that smaller forces
    can push price through manipulation?

    Any ideas out there?
