Chart 1: NASDAQ Composite charts - volume spike and index reversal.
This NASDAQ Composite index chart above provides an excellent example of a Volume Moving Average (VMA) signal that confirms the bottom (support level) in the index's decline. This chart example shows clearly the relationship between the Index Price and the Volume Moving Average (VMA). You see a very large increase in VMA after the 13:30 index, which would signal the possibility of changes in the trend. However, when the VMA began to decline, this VMA signal was not confirmed by a price movement upward. Instead, the NASDAQ Composite index continued to decline until the second volume surge (high VMA) occurred around 15:00. The VMA began to decline after the second volume surge. This VMA signal was confirmed by a price advance, which indicated that professional bullish traders had taken over from the bearish traders and started to push price up - which could be a good time to buy.
