Questions about “buyers vs. sellers” can be answered by pulling Time & Sales (T&S). Most investors don’t know how to access and/or interpret that info. But there are dozens of freely-available, easily-accessed and used technical-indicators that can give them a visual representation of whether a stock is being ‘accumulated’ or distributed’.

Below are links to some, using the same, randomly-chosen stock. Which --if any-- of those indicators might be useful can only be determined by plotting lots and lots of stocks and then doing frame-by-frame walk-throughs. In other words, by doing basic, "get-your-hands-dirty-with-data" research, because once you have discovered a volume-based indicator that seems to give a reasonably accurate description of how the constant struggle between buyers and sellers is playing out, you've still gotta decide what you what to do with that info. Do you trade it, fade it, or ignore it?
