Post From: Why is Volume Rounded to the Nearest Integer? And why in 10^-4 units?

The data is stored as integers since volume data has integer storage in Sierra Chart.

However, the floating-point volume values are multiplied by 10,000.

We just looked at a recent trade on Bitstamp and the volume was:
49.9317

This is stored as in Sierra Chart:
499317


You can check this through Edit >> Edit/Download Data-Intraday Chart.

It will be exported as:
499317


So we do not observe what you are seeing. You will see the unadjusted values multiplied by 10,000. However, the last four digits will not always be 0000.
