does this volume number really provide any value?

I have no idea where FXCM gets its information from, but there certainly seems to be some evidence that on hourly and longer timeframes, there's a statistically significant correlation between tick volume and actual volumes transacted. Perhaps not surprisingly? Whether and the extent to which that has "value" is another matter, and more subjective.
