declining volume vs rising price

  1. 17 Posts.
    I'm new to trading and have been trying to learn as much as possible but what I read doesn't seem to match up to what I see happening so I'd like to ask a question:

    The volume for CBA has been decreasing over the last week while the share price goes up. As I understand it this is evidence of a weak trend but there doesn't seem to be any drawback in the shares themselves. This is something I've seen over a few other shares I'm watching (like BHP) so I was just wondering wether I was missing another indicator that made falling volume redundant.

    Cheers for any help.
