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.

That's exactly, how one person I know does it. Just wondering if it is common practice or a rarity.. It is a more manual process and I don't think any systems incorporate the two. But that would be neat if a system Or add on did.
Best regards,
Brian
