Actually, I disagree, volume means much.  Lots of flipping and that is what volume is...Ping Pong and I agree.  the fact is, that once the volume dries up, we end up in a direction usually.....Its up or down.  Simple as that.  Volume causes direction ultimately. So, after all is said in done, after the ping pong that volume creates, we will know where we settle.  Simple as that  Who's buying and who's selling will have great impact on where we end up.
