Welcome to futures.io.
This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.
We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.
You'll need to
in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community.
It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Thanks: 8 given,
There is no volume for Forex in IB. However, when adding the "Volume" study in
Multicharts with IB as the datafeed, some kind of volume does get displayed, but only from the moment connection is established. Not for past data.
Two questions arise:
1. What is this volume?
2. Is there a possibility to backfill it?

1. This might be just a summation of what ever is shown as best bid or best ask, but this is just a guess. You might want to contact MC directly as they will be able to tell you exactly what value from the API they show here.
2. I doubt that.
