volume on FX

Question

Dear IG. I see that Volume has finally been added to PRT over the summer for various instrument, but sadly not on any FX?

 

Is it the nearby future for FX or what is the status?

 

Best regards

 

Kasper

Hi ,

 

Our next step is to see if we can get Volume for equities on spread betting ProRealTime accounts. Once we have been able to do this, we'll turn our attention to FX volume on ProRealTime!

 

Cheers,
Dan

Hi Dan, What's the status for implementing the volume indicator in Prorealtime forex markets? The webtrader already has the volume indicator so it should be easy to implement into prorealtime?

 

Cheers Kasper

Hi

 

At the moment there is no plan to include the tick data volume from our platform's FX pairs to ProRealTime, I will send your feedback to IT finance for further consideration. At the moment you will only be able to see volume for instruments where the volume data will comes from an exchange or underlying market such as shares and indices.

 

Thanks

Anton

    • yes they will be on less charts but I understand your point about the size of the moves in ftse, no harm in trialing them though you might find marking out the immediate prior high and low has more relevance.  
    • Yeah, I keep an eye on volume, that's why it's showing at the bottom of my chart However, I haven't been able to discover a strong relation between volume spikes and trend direction. Sometimes I see orders of the magnitude of 10-20k and the chart doesn't do anything special. Other times you see just average volume and the chart does huge turnarounds. For example what happened at 8.30 with that spike down and then going straight back up and making new highs vs previous candle? All happened on low volume
    • @jameswalker1 my recommendation is trade the demo account to get a better understanding of the costs associated. I traded demo for nearly 2 years before placing my first real trade. It will save you in the long run to get a better understanding of the costs involved.
