volume and time frame

hello everybody
do you think the volume with a short time frame as 1min. or 5min. in eur/usd can be enough strong and fiability to be use as a good indicator?
thanks

I don't know what IB and FxPro are showing for volume, but there's a good chance it's not a real figure, but instead what we call tick volume. There's no central aggregated volume figure like there is for stocks and futures.

IB don't show any volume but fxpro show some volume and I am agree with you you give me the confirmation about what I thought in my mind what is for you the best indicator to give us the best information about the strongest "kind of volume" on a tick?
