question about GameStop price drop without trade volume increase
I would be very interested if someone could explain to me why there is such a significant price drop in price for the GameStop stock on an hourly chart without a corresponding significant increase in trade volume according to this chart? I would think that significant drop in price would correspond with significant increase in sell volume when all the people holding this GME stock decide to take profits while they still can, but I do not see obvious increase in trade volume. By the way, I notice same pattern with other securities as well where I see significant changes in price, but without corresponding obvious changes in trade volume. Intuitively it makes sense that significant changes in price would correlate with significant changes in trade volume, but quite often I just do not see this relation reflected on charts. I would appreciate if someone could explain what is the reason for this behavior.
Thank you in advance,
