Volume required for a reversal for a stock

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


    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
  2. 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.
  3. What are you talking about?

    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? :D

    Keep doing what you do... Whatever it is...
  5. nearly every observable volume price relationship can be explained through manipulation of the formula

    this is the closest to a 'formula' for the stock market


    A high volume, high density, selloff on the right hand side of the chart will penetrate a weak left hand side support even if the volume on the right hand side is much less than the total volume on the left hand side.
