Dynamics in financial markets depend on buying and selling interests.

When buyers dominate, appreciation can be expected. When sellers dominate, depreciation can be expected. For this reason, volume data is extremely important for market analysts and often brings additional value to the fundamental and technical analyses performed.

Foreign exchange trading is OTC (over the counter), which is why there are no official statistics on trading activity. However, other asset classes such as equities or derivatives (futures and options) provide similar information.

Executing trades in line with prevailing market sentiment increases the probability of success.
