Can I trust volume data for CFD?

    I wonder if volume data for commodity CFD (in my case, Nat Gas) comes from CME exchanges. My question is virtually the same as this one:


    Can this be true?

    My problem is, I have an indicator I like but unfortunately, it's for MetaTrader4 and I don't have its source code. I use this indicator with Nat Gas CFD chart from my forex broker IC Markets. Because this indicator (VWAP related) relies on volume data, I want to know if the volume data is reliable.

    Not sure, but I have always thought the volume is from the CFD exchange, so that you cannot really be sure you get the total volume

    I don't trust those volume data.

    That's why I trade futures through the Exchanges like CME, HKFE ...

    I also think CFD's volume is actually tick volume....

    It is better to pay for quality data rather than
    to get free but questionable volume data.

    I really don’t find volume datas reliable so I avoid it. I’m trading indices with Octafx and Fxview these days. I find them a lot easier than CFDs and the order execution is way faster in my opinion. Works for me.
