    There isn't one. There isn't a central exchange for trading forex so there isn't any way of measuring it.

    Your questions are based on a misapprehension about how the market works and what moves prices.

    The balance of any big broker isn't going to tell you what you need to know. Even all the retail brokers' balances added together or averaged out represent only a tiny fraction of the interbank market.

    Retail traders' volumes aren't what moves the market, and institutional traders' volumes aren't available.

    Volumes are available for forex futures, not for spot forex.

    Dear,

    many thanks for your answer.
    I know you are right.
    Do you think the futures reflect a important part of the total volume ?
    Iam thinking about a strenght Indicator.
    I cant imagine that the indicators are out there reflect the real currency strenght.
    You dont think a 1% EURUSD is more important then a 1% EURNZD Move ?

    Given that, do you know any brokers that offer forex futures as a demo on Metatrader?

    Just go to the CME group's website and there you will find currency futures contracts by expiry month with charts displaying total closing volume (colour coded)... It does not get any better than that...

    Also,you can see the CME monthly volume reports for FX futures here:

    Volume & Open Interest Reports

    On the document, FX data starts at page 13, listed by last two months, the last month the previous year, and the rate of change...

    PipMeHappy thanks for your efforts.
    Will check that tomorrow.

    Do you think the CME stuff will give a small realistic outlook in the Volumes ?
    Is there some of these information where the HFT happen ?
    Or do you believe it is complete useless ?

    I dont need the realtime - "only" the most traded pairs descend sortet
