Hello Support,


I've loaded forex charts for IB and I can get volume for the 1 minute, daily, weekly and monthly. But I can't get volume data for the other timeframes in between? Are there any settings I can change to show this?

For us to help with this we need to see a chart with the standard Sierra Chart "Volume" Study.

OK we understand the nature of the problem now. The historical data for cash Forex markets from IB will not contain the volume. Instead what you see is a volume of 1 for every underlying data record.

You are able to use the historical data from the Sierra Chart Forex data service when using Interactive Brokers. This will be automatically downloaded when using IB Forex symbols. For this you will need to change your service package to 3. Do you want us to do that for you?
