'I noticed that the volume indicator figures that I had are very different from those of colleagues of mine who get theirs from yahoo. So I called up my broker who said that in fact what the indicator shows is the number of updates, or number of ticks, rather than the amount of trading taking place. This seems very unsatisfactory'

'The volume indicator shows how many ticks are received in each bar. If you watch it you will see the total increment as each tick comes in. It is different between brokers because some pass on every tick and others filter them to bias things in their favour.'

visit the link and read the comments.

volume is not volume(amount) as we think. it is tick counter for each bar.

thank you.

I was thinking the same thing for last 4 years.
on sunday I need the volume values to use at an EA first time in my life. what I find out is, in reality the histogram represent the price change( tick count ) of each bar. not amout (volume traded )

what ironic. same name as the trade volume(amount) but telling completly different story.

fyi

Hmmm. I do not think that the result of your investigation is correct. As far as I can see the histogram has nothing at all to do with the amount of ticks covered by a bar. I am pretty sure it represents the volume of lots traded.

this has nothing to do with the trades psted. this is another idea currently working on.
why I am looking for volumes.

here is the story;

when price move a direction it has break distance as every moving object.
we can not know how much it will move but we can calculate the min bareak distance when breaked.

this distance is the profit.

think that way.

if we can calculate the speed of price and if we know the Mass ( means volume ) we can calculate the real momentum of the price. this momentum will give us the min break distance of the price.
when calculated min break distance > our profit target then trade will be open to the price directon.

there could be 3 poss move.

1 price can keep moving our direction which is good.
2 price can break, then we will wait for the break distance to exit.
3 reverse move. if the calculations are correct this should be rare.

so I am looking to find the volumes at least traded by the mean broker.

This System doesn't work on real account with any broker.....

See this article (https://articles.mql4.com/163) and you will understand why...

No hard feelings.....
