Thanks.

It seems logical to overlay an indicator over an indicator, like i.e. overlay a moving average over a MACD, so you overlay the Better Volume algorithm on top of the Real Volume indicator to produce the changes in colour.

That would be nice wouldn't it. The thing is, BetterVol and Chaikin Oscillator and several others use price & volume data, grouped together in what is known as a "bar_stream".

The way FXCM programmed Real Volume, it is just the volume ("tick_stream"), and so you can't overlay any indicator on it - since it does not contain the prices.

In theory, it should be possible to create an indicator that aggregates the price and Real Volume data into a new "bar_stream" - I tried this, but I was not successful - I think due to the way it is coded.

The simplest way would be for FXCM to improve this indicator. It is only a kind of Beta just now. Maybe they will add it, or provide better access for developers.

Did you make any progress with this? I had a go, but I could not get the indicator to function properly when used inside another indicator.

Same problem here.
Tried, was not satisfied with the result, left further development, for now.
Ask FXCM to provide this data via regular source / Price Server stream.
