There is no such thing as forex volume since there is no centralized forex trading, but only pools of different sizes.

Whatever your tick volume shows, it's absolutely meaningless in forex.

This isn't completely true. Forex datafeeds are of varying quality, meaning they will show a volume tick per trade (not taking into account the dollar value), or, some feeds consolidate many players into their data push. Esignal probably has one of the best ones, consolidating dollar value of the trade at every tick - from over 200 large players - into it's volume feed. I wrote more about that here:

Also, there are decent and profitable trading strategies related to using this forex volume data, ie Wyckoff, VSA, and others, based on stopping volume, exhaustion, interest at certain price levels, etc.

Sorry to the original poster, I do not know the answer as I don't use MultiCharts.

My point was there is forex volume, and it can indeed be meaningful.

Why should one use any forex pool volume if you have real futures volume in the respective currencies?
Or to put it another way: How meaningless must a forex pair be to switch from a regulated contract to pool volume?

Hi guys,
Technically, I just want the Multicharts to show tick count in Renko charts, that's all I wish.

jiaqiangmit,

I am not aware of the possibility to set the volume to tick count on Renko charts, but you might want to contact the MC support to clarify that.

Regards,

ABCTG
