Book Description

In the continual pursuit for higher profits, investors and traders alike often assume significantly higher risks while chasing the next hot opportunity. Other more sophisticated investors attempt to employ complicated indicators while not fully understanding the information the indicator was designed to reveal. On the other hand, savvy investors employ analysis to gauge the market, positioning themselves to potentially earn higher profits with significantly less risk. Volume analysis attempts to delve deep inside the market trends to help identify shifts within the markets.  Investing with Volume Analysis: Identify, Follow, and Profit from Trendspresents an enlightened perspective on the role of volume, not only in pragmatic terms but also in terms of apprehending the underlying rationale of how and why. Award-winning technical analyst Buff Pelz Dormeier teaches state-of-the-art methods for analyzing the relationship of volume to price movements and the evolution of market trends.

From the Author

(Fort Wayne, IN) The Technical Analyst, an international publication servicing institutional financial markets, just named Investing with Volume Analysis as its Book of the Year at an award ceremony in London on April 18, 2013. Author Buff Dormeier accepted the award saying,
"I am extremely honored to accept this Award and do so with deep humility.... Although none of us know the future, as accomplished practitioners of market analysis we have each developed an edge, an edge to be treasured but not necessarily hidden. Yet we all share our ideas. I pray daily for wisdom. Perhaps that is why I am blessed to be supported upon the shoulders of the work of great practitioners like these willing to share their own insights. So let us thank, Mr. Matthew Clements whose magazine The Technical Analyst's scours the globe bringing unique ideas to light that we all might be better at our professions. Cheers!". Technical Analysis by Charles Kirkpatrick & Julia Dalhquist was the runner up, making it a clean sweep for financial publisher FT Press.

5.0 out of 5 stars New ideas are rare, but Buff offers many April 5, 2011
Format:Hardcover
Recognized with the Dow Award for his 2006 paper on volume, Buff is already a recognized expert on the subject. In that paper, he introduced the Volume Confirmation Price Indicator (VCPI). With this book, he furthers not only his reputation as probably the foremost expert on the subject but he also demonstrates that he is a talented story teller as he makes the history of technical analysis come alive for readers.

If we are perfectly honest, at least in my opinion, too many technical analysis books devote their first few chapters to the basics of technical analysis with a few comments on its historical perspective. I usually barely skim these sections because I've already read the story several dozen times and wonder why it needs to be repeated. Buff tells it differently, starting in the beginning with examples from Biblical times and moving forward through time to draw on Wyckoff and Schabacker rather than simply the standard facts about Edwards and Magee. He offers a story from Ralph Acampora about how John Magee faced an SEC inquiry where he was forced to defend the principles of technical analysis. While there are few true historians in the field, Buff joins their ranks with his very readable Part 1.

Behavioral finance theories factor into the explanations of why volume leads price. Technical analysts can appreciate that fact, but many only care about whether or not an idea makes money in the long run. A number of money-making tools are introduced in the book, including volume-weighted moving averages, volume-weighted MACD, and the Trend Thrust Indicator. Practical applications of these are developed, with the underlying logic and strategy explained.

2.0 out of 5 stars Same old same old August 6, 2011
Format:Hardcover
This book starts out great.The first 80 pages are tremendous trading theory. Then I started to get that sick feeling in my gut when I saw candlestick analysis and chart patterns. The book began to turn into a VSA (Volume Spread Analysis)primer. The next shock was the 4 quotes by Harold M. Gartley that shaped the research for the rest of the book. They are antiquated and given to an era where they hardly had the insight available to a trader today. What follows that is a list of volume indicators that could be found on any trading based website and then some information on market breadth indicators that also have been more thoroughly written of in Greg Morris' book on Market Breadth Indicators.
The book gave some original thoughts concerning cap weighted volume and a trend thrust indicator made by Dormier but the usefulness of such things is torn apart by Buff himself in the final chapter when he tells us all that due to dark pools we are left with an erroneous picture of market depth and volume as retail traders anyway.
Man, I had high hopes!! But this one self destructed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Groundbreaking Concepts and Research on Volume June 10, 2011
Format:Hardcover
I have read many books on investing and trading, and this is one of the very best.
It is the single most complete, yet concise book I know on the subject of volume analysis - more than 300 pages packed with useful information.
Buff Dormeier writes clearly, even about deep material. The book goes through all the basics but also offers advanced and new concepts for the more experienced.

Unfortunately many investors overlook the benefit of understanding and learning volume analysis, focusing only on price and price momentum.
How to combine volume with many of the best known price momentum indicators is of profound value to an investor.
The book discusses no less than 7 types of volume indicators - from pure volume indicators to inter- and intraday indicators, VWMAs and
of course Buff Dormeier's own VPCI - The Volume Price Confirmation Indicator.
Especially informative I found:
-> How to use the VPCI in combination with other indicators.
-> The comprehensive study on how including the VPCI in your strategies can enhance both (risk adjusted) returns and reliability.

To me personally, other highlights of the book were the chapters including:
-> Capital weighted Volume. This chapter basically teaches you how to avoid the pitfalls of index volume, track the actions of institutions better
and how to rebuild breadth indicators using cap-weighted volume.
-> Anti-volume stop loss
-> Similarities and differences between breadth and volume indicators.
-> Volume dictated strategies: MPS (Market Positioning Systems).

5.0 out of 5 stars Teaches Proven Techniques April 3, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Buff Dormeier has written a very useful book. Thanks to this book, I have a couple great new ideas to test in Microsoft Excel. Thanks Mr. Dormeier!

The premise of this book is that trading volume contains useful information in estimating the future path of a stock or the stock market. Investing with Volume Analysis provides performance figures, draw down results and reliability figures for several strategies. This in itself makes this book unique in the technical analysis field. In addition, and this is big addition, calculation instructions and examples are included!

What else can you expect to find in this book?

- Numerous charts and graphs illustrating key points.

- Signature patterns of Market tops and bottoms.

- References to several academic studies with empirical evidence on the relationship between volume and return.

- How significant are volume spikes to a stocks future performance.

- How indexes distort volume analysis.

If you are a fundamental analyst this book will make you reconsider adding volume to your list of indicators.

P.S. This is the first finance book I have come across that acknowledges up front where true wisdom comes from. This is a very refreshing and welcome change! No wonder Mr. Dormeier was able to write such a useful book.
