Volume feed for FDAX

Guest Tarquin


Guest Tarquin

Why does the IG platform not enable volume data to be displayed in charts for futures indices like the FDAX. Other systems like Ninja Trader enable volume data to be displayed for indices such as the FDAX within a chart. IG enables this for currencies and commodities, but not indices - why?


Does anyone know how to import a volume data feed for futures indices into Real Time Pro from Eurex in the way it is a standard feature for Ninja Trader please?

Volume is an important indicator for many traders and so it is a subject that is often brought up in conversation. 


Since it is such an important tool for many we want to be very mindful on what we show, as if we were to show volume for cash or DFB indices, given that this is a market we have priced then the volume associated would only be that of what is traded with IG. Such data may not always represent what is happening and so we have chosen not to show it. As to why we have not added the volume for futures that is something we are looking to do in the future. 


I hope that helps!

Many thanks for your comments. I was thinking specifically of the Futures market and the FDAX. It should be possible for IG to stream volume data from Eurex, which I believe is what some other trading platforms provide.

    • The cryptocurrency industry has grown rapidly in recent years, with the total market capitalization now exceeding $500 billion. However, the industry still faces a number of challenges, including security and on-chain efficiency which is one of the biggest challenges in the cryptocurrency industry, because in recent years, there have been a number of high-profile hacks of cryptocurrency exchanges & wallets, and traders are faced with high cost of on-chain transactions. All of which summed up to make cryptocurrency trading less efficient. In order to address these issues, exchanges are seen taking up the responsibility of solving the problems and I've seen Bitget, a leading cryptocurrency derivatives exchange, recently partnering with Cobo, a leading provider of digital asset custody and security solutions. This partnership is aimed at enhancing the security and efficiency of cryptocurrency trading, which will allow users to seamlessly execute cross-exchange transactions, enabling users to capitalise on arbitrage opportunities without having to deposit their funds directly on exchanges. This could significantly reduce on-chain transaction gas costs and make crypto investments more efficient and cost-effective. Developments like this, if it could be capitalised on would take away bad players from the industry, make crypto a safe place and increase its adoption, but how wide would it cover for the whole users in the crypto space and even Bitcoin?

    • I think bitget will be the obvious option cos binance that use to be a good option isn't finding it rosy atm with regulatory bodies and speculations around the health of the exchange aren't friendly to feel safe with them atm
