Momentum Divergence

Momentum divergence is the deviation of price and volume demonstrated as a continuation of a trend without the necessary momentum to sustain the move. For example, the price of a stock may continue to rise, however, the volume begins to decline behind the ascension, indicating a lack of conviction from the buyers. Momentum divergence can signal a pending trend reversal.
