Volume required for a reversal for a stock

Discussion in 'Technical Analysis' started by stock_trad3r, Jun 17, 2008.

The volume required for a stock to fall a certain percentage on a 1x1 scaled graph is approximated by the formula:

V2=V1*((M2-1)/(M1-1))*(M1-1-2ln(3/(M1+2)))/(M2-1-2ln(3/(M2+2)))

V1 is the volume on the left side of the chart

M1 is the slope of the left side

M2 is the slope of the right side of the selloff

V2= is the volume required for the selloff

the formula is derived by taking the integral of the energy level

the energy level is a function of price, slope, and volume for a time interval and the energy of the left hand side must equal that of the right.

This formula explains why a stock like CSCO or INTC doesn't fall more than a penny when someone instantly sells 1000 shares

could you elaborate on the "volume on the left side of the chart"? maybe do an example problem with this formula so I can see the variables put in the right places. that would be awesome if you could make that happen.

First you're a fundamental investing guru, then a daytrading guru, and now I don't even know...

Hmm. Or could it just be that these stocks are highly liquid?

Keep doing what you do... Whatever it is...
