I have shares in NSAM.L. During the last week have exceeded the buying and selling operations offices of 5 to 1, but the share price continues to drop.

First, the purchase and sale must match, but I think I know what you're saying.

The way the population will be based on supply and demand. Each trade might have been purchasing the same or around the same price and sellers may be willing to sell at that price, but then a large sell order comes and buyers do not want to pay that price because there is more to sales people want , reducing the price .

So while you may have 10 operations to buy 100 shares each. A trade sale of 500 shares could push down.

Hope that helps!

Could it be that the vendors are selling for thousands , but buyers are buying the one hundred ( for example) . There are more shops sell , but less shares sold who bought therefore demand more and the price goes up ?

Perhaps the company has been underperforming , and people know they are buying a takeover bid that will shoot up prices as confidence grows ?
