On-Balance Volume

In technical analysis, a measure of the amount of money going into or out of a given security. It is calculated by comparing a security's volume to its price over a given time. Technical analysts use on-balance volume to determine a security's momentum. A change in the on-balance volume indicates a coming change in the security's overall trend.

on-balance volume

Technical analysts consider great volume on rising prices bullish because it indicates the possibility that large traders are accumulating investment positions in a security. Conversely, the technicians consider greater volume on falling prices bearish.
