Volume scalping forex strategy

Once the price closes outside of tunnel boundaries, we will be looking at the volumes to tell us what is going on. First thing we want to look for, is growing activity from session to session. Considering the fact,that price is already traded beyond the tunnel, we will be waiting with the pending order for price to continue to move away from the tunnel in the breakout.
