Volume is important
Volume is important when trading any of the different markets. Stock prices can only move up when buyers become aggressive and raise bids to chase diminishing supply. Prices drop when traders or sellers are desperate to get sell a stock and drop their prices to bring in scarce buyers. Often in a breakout, the price moves above when a prior buying area that has already been weakened. When investors and traders see that new high being made, they jump on board and the volume spikes. This can be a problem sometimes.
