Volume feed for FDAX


Guest Tarquin

Question

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?

Hi 

 

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.
