point Tick volume displayed in MT5

Tick volume displayed in MT5 comes from the forex broker. The volume displays the total trade volume. Since MT5 cannot calculate the trade volume of forex and CFD symbols traded outside of the exchange, it uses ticks provided by the broker to analyze market liquidity and price movements. A rise in liquidity means more tick updates, and a decrease in liquidity means fewer tick updates.
