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.

From the Back Cover:

“I found Investing with Volume Analysis of great interest. Any new study of volume and its great technical importance demands immediate attention. It is good to have Buff’s new ideas and discoveries added to the history and importance of volume in technical analysis. My sincere thanks to Buff for his great work and contribution.”

Joseph E. Granville, The Granville Market Letter


“The author has gathered in one place all the major methods and theories that deal with volume in the stock market and has recognized volume as an equal partner with price in the workings of market and stock movements. He puts it all together into usable and readable guidance, using effective analogies and occasional humor.”    
—Richard W. Arms, Jr., Arms Advisory


“Buff presents a thorough discussion of the utility of volume and volume-based market indicators, both traditional and of his own creation. Fellow market analysts can be glad for this resource and the fact that the VPCI on Buff himself is in a strongly rising trend.”
—Robert Prechter and Dave Allman, Elliott Wave International


“I really enjoyed and appreciated the author’s ability to combine volume with many of the basic indicators used by technicians today.”
—Ralph J. Acampora, CMT, Managing Director, Altaira Investment Solutions


“I trade for a living and don’t have time for fluff and puff. Buff tossed facts and figures in my face like a silver cross in front of a vampire. He is on to much here, as you will see. This book is not a morsel; it’s a nine-course meal. Dig in.”
—Larry Williams, Private Trader, World Cup Trading Champion


“For every stock trade that takes place, three key pieces of information are recorded: price, time, and size. It is from these three pieces of data that we derive all the key information that technical analysts use to examine a stock’s behavior. If you are only looking at prices, then you are throwing out a whole lot of key information.

Buff’s book teaches you how to take that information about the size of trades and turn it into the seven types of volume indicators. Better still, he teaches you how to use those tools to improve your own trading.”
—Tom McClellan, Editor, The McClellan Market Report


If price is the market’s testimony, then volume is the market’s polygraph. More than any other indicator, volume tells you the real force and extent of investors’ convictions about prices. By analyzing the market’s volume-oriented “lie detector tests,” you can uncover trends sooner with more reliability–and thus be better positioned to capture the profits those trends might deliver.


In Investing with Volume Analysis, award-winning technical analyst Buff Dormeier reveals how volume validates, interprets, and leads price. Using volume analysis, you’ll learn to uncover surprising shifts in investor enthusiasm, identify disparities in market opinion, and sniff out coming trend reversals.


Dormeier reviews many traditional volume indicators, introduces his own groundbreaking approaches, and shows you exactly how to apply them. You’ll learn how to assess strength and weakness in both supply and demand; identify common market narratives buried beneath volume data; integrate volume analysis with other portfolio allocation techniques; and much more.
