Equivolume charting is a method of charting developed by Richard Arms based on the principle that the
market is a function of volume, not time, and so gives more emphasis to volume than traditional bar
charts. Equivolume charts put volume rather than time on the horizontal axis and depict each day as a
box. The bottom and top of the box represent the low and high for the day, while the width is the volume
of shares or contracts traded during that day. The shape of the box generated is thus a visual
representation of the relationship between price range and volume. Tall, thin rectangles represent large
movement on comparatively light volume, while short wide boxes represent small price movement
compared to the volume.

Equivolume box A illustrates low volume and easy price movement while box B shows heavy volume with little price movement.
