Unlike futures, with spot forex, volume information is not readily available due to the decentralized nature of that specific market. This is a function of what is available via the API and not a limit imposed by MotiveWave. In this case where historical volume is not provided, MotiveWave will assign a value of 1 to every tick. The total ticks for that period are added and presented as volume. MotiveWave will also tally the separate tick totals for bid and ask.
