    Default but even then ... and the price

    A single, high-volume, price peak often defines a resistance point, but even then, because the high volume, especially if it is preceded by a sharp price rise, is a sign of speculation and emotion, and the price where large sellers actually begin to enter the market is unclear.
    (Technical analysis: the complete resource for financial market technicians / Charles D. Kirkpatrick and Julie Dahlquist.)

    I read it as follows:

    Is the word 'and' necessary here?

    Thanks.

    NOT A TEACHER

    I think it is necessary here because after the AND, it is not a clause of the previous sentence but a new one has been attached to it. If you read it without the AND, you may observe that it seems as if a different piece of information has been added here, slightly losing relevance and flow. It does not add to the concept of the previous one.

    Well that's only my opinion Hopefully a teacher will guide you better

    I can't parse it at all, unless I insert or omit certain words. Yes, leaving out 'and' is one way of making sense of it.
    Alternatively, you could omit "because" from "because the high volume".
