Hello,
I know some people use a combination of futures volume in a combination with Forex trading. I know for the most part Forex trading does not have volume readily available unless you are a institutional investor. Then you can use like FXCM. Any feedback would be great!

What an interesting concept. Would be interesting to see the actual system and how they combine the data.

What comes to mind is using the volume feed from 6E futures and then somehow comparing this to the spot forex data feed. But have not done any backtesting on this idea. Would be great to hear from someone already doing this.

Would be interesting to see how much correlation exists between 6E and EUR/USD data feed.
