Futures vs Volume

In normal stocks a high-volume breakout confirm that breakout. Trends usually occure in high-volume.

However, in future market, trends occure often in low volume and if after high-volume breakout the price reverse, that confirms the end of the trend. So volume indicator is hard to use for prediction. Indicators such as MFI (=Range/Volume) worsen trade results.

Bo Yoder claims that ATR can be used with success but does not provide statistical results.
