2019 Starts With A Bang! Volume Price Analysis Reveals The Truth

If there was one word to define the end of 2018 and the start of 2019, that would be volatility. Over the holiday period and at the start of the new trading year we have seen extreme and volatile moves across the markets.

Astonishing by any standards, even in a ‘normal’ session and not one sandwiched between two holidays. Next came the flash crash for currencies with the yen pairs plunging several hundred pips in minutes, only to recover equally quickly over the next few hours.

And all of this price action was given further impetus from the thin liquidity and low volumes. Both these moves were associated with average volume, and sending a clear and unequivocal signal of traps laid by the market makers and big operators. Volume price analysis as always reveals the truth behind price action and whether the major players are participating in such moves.
