    FxPro - Approx. 4.5 times less ticks but consistent tick volume and price data

    Hello Cocky,

    Sorry for my late reply. I have checked out FxPro and compared with FXCM.

    FxPro have approx. 4.5 times less ticks than FXCM but consistent tick volume and price data. From what I can see it is not a bad choice. I think it is better than FTT.

    As a starter I have added 15 minute charts with FXCM, FxPro and the CME Euro Futures. With the latter as last time I have choosen Total Volume, not Contract Volume.

    Guys, I am looking for people using VSA so we could together design how to use VSA together with harmonic patterns.
    I have several ideas how to approach the topic (1.measure the volume at the harmonic pattern points, 2.compare the aggregated volume in each harmonic pattern swing, and more). I look for valunteers with VSA and preferable also harmonic trading understanding.
    Anyone?

    Guys,

    Use IBFX for best volume feed.

    You are very much welcome Wickedwin . It is helpful to me too. To me it is reassuring to see that important volume on the CME currencies are in "agreement" with spot fx tick volume. In regards of CME currencies volume itself I think it is helpful to see the spikes in volume for example at times when it is more difficult to see them in spot fx. I mean, because of the higher overall activity on the spot.

    I use VSA with sup/dem solely for my manual trading. The latest version of SMARTTRADER (Version 2.0) takes VSA to another level IMO.

    Kor4x - Using SMARTTRADER with Harmonics would be extremely easy to do and would provide for precise entries on Daily/H4/H1 timeframes. Something I would be interested in testing out with you (I have a reasonable understanding of Harmonics, but havent traded it a lot).

    FXCM - IBFX comparison H1

    Dr. Jack, I have attached a screenshot of FXCM together with IBFX on a hourly chart with the Euro and would like to share some thoughts, but it would have been interesting to hear specifically why you think IBFX has the best volume feed.

    As one can see FXCM has almost three times higher tick count than IBFX. Not that higher tick count has to be an advantage as long as a lower tick count is consistent all the time. But from what I have seen on the lower tick count feeds there seems to be a tendency that the nuances between highest volume and lower/lowest volume gets a bit washed away. Kind of smoothed out. Like for example in the screenshot attached I personally get a more immediate intuitive picture that activity has diminished during the two last days before the large drop from 1.3125 with FXCM's tick volume. Off course this would/could be a matter of taste, but when doing this a lot I have personally become kind of sensitive to the differences happening. So I would prefer a close as possible to a "non-smoothed" "true" picture.

    What kind of amazes me is that from all the MT4 brokers I have compared with it seems like that FXCM is the only broker that delivers unfiltered tick volume. I have also tried TenFore (supposed to be professional fx data) with MultiCharts, but their tick volume looks like some really nice smoothed and rounded ridges, which in my opinion is useless. Looks good though. Kind of reminds me of something else

    In the screenshot attached you can also see the kind of data server glitch with FXCM data that I have been talking about earlier. It is also with the GBPJPY and AUDUSD at the exact same moment. This is neither with IBFX nor the CME Euro Futures. So that's the only pooper. Something FXCM still have to improve. So if there is someone else here using FXCM data, please be on their backs.
