Seeking advice for index futures data feed

Hi,

First post here and looking for some advice.

I day trade DAX and SPX cfd's with FXCM.
Still being a beginner trader it has been a great way to start out.
Small size & low margin requirements .. Good way to have some skin into the game and learn the ropes.

Although it's a good way to start out, FXCM has it's limitations in trading tools.
There is no volume feed & no access towards more detailed charts like for example tick charts.
In my first months of trading I have been doing all my charting on Tradingview and used FXCM trading station (not Tradestation) purely for execution.

Recently I have been looking into access towards more advanced charts and data feed from the futures market.
Would there be a way to receive this kind of data by a third party provider?

I would still like to continue trading cfd's until being confident & capitalized enough to make the switch towards futures.
So for me it's not an option to open a futures trading account with a broker that provides more trading tools.

Anyone got recommendations, tips or ideas?

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Thank you.

Edit: It's possible that I did not post in the right sub-forum.
Due this being my first post I'm not permitted yet to make a posts in "Brokers and Data Feeds".

Edit2: Thanks for moving my post into the correct sub-forum, Mike!

You can trade the DAX CFD on FXCM with NinjaTrader. ( I have never traded it ) I pulled up a chart and it seems to have something that resembles volume.

Math. A gateway drug to reality.
