A look at NYSE volume going back to july of 2008

monthly NYSE volume with the 30 year and dollar plotted in the lower. 
What to make of this? well declining volume since 2008.. yes there were spiks over the red line BUT averages (the body of candle not wick) have been on a steady decline as the dollar and treasuries steadily moved north.

As the 30 year near 140 you can see above how equity volumes react.. this is all normal right.. risk comes out of equities and goes into a safer asset, dollars. How long can the trend last? is there a huge move coming or will treasuries and dollar give up their bids soon as europe resolves?
