Getting around the absence of volume in ProRealTime



Firstly, I think it's very unusual that a supposedly 'pro' platform like PRT has no volume for commodities and no tick volume for forex (aside from that, I love it).

For commodities, vol data is available from the exchange and for forex it's always substituted with tick volume which is also available. There is no excuse when every instrument on the web platform has volume. Furthermore, I checked with the PRT developers and if you access the platform directly from them, you DO get access to volumes. I can't understand why IG doesn't address this issue.

That being said, I'm wondering if it would be possible to code a tick volume indicator from the tick data that comes in. I'm only just starting to get my head around the coding features of PRT but someone with more experience might be able to answer this.

No idea to be honest.. rather frustrating having a platform which is capable of showing the order book, order flow, depth of market etc yet it's all disabled. It's as if IG don't want their customers to use these to an advantage.. even though the usual retail noob wouldn't understand half of it.

    • Hah, can't believe they censored out the word d@mn.    
    • Interesting chart of Scandinavian all-cause deaths in 24 month periods shows no covid effect at all. The winter of 2019/20 was mild with fewer seasonal deaths than ususal but then the novel coronavirus was released and the deaths that would have occured during winter occured in April instead.  This is why so many countries are showing no real increase in all-cause deaths per year. It also shows that the covid death numbers are fake and are rebranded deaths from other causes. The vast majority of people who catch covid have mild or no symptoms at all, for those with symptoms the infectous stage only lasts 10 days max. From then on you have natural immunity. If you've had SARS-CoV-2 anytime over the last 17 years you will have T-cell immunity, if you have been in contact with covid-2 this last year you will also have covid-2 antibody immunity. Push the myth that covid can be spread asymptomatcally, mass test asymptomatic people with a test that is designed to detect old dead viral RNA that their immune system has destroyed and when the test shows positive pretend they actually have covid. We are constantly in contact with viral material, with an effective immune system we deal with it and don't get sick. Testing people who are not sick you will find old viral material if they came in contact with the virus up to a month previously, same if you apply the test to someone who has died.  Counting these people as covid 'Cases/Deaths' is a fraud and is done to boost the numbers and perpetuate the climate of fear. No return of freedom for you until you're begging for health identity cards, oh - and may as well add finance and energy usage details while we're at it.   .
