What options do i have with Forex and Volume?

So I noticed that getting volume while doing Forex is not possible and Crypto is hit or miss. Should i just download Lean and put together a project locally feeding my own data into the backtesting?

you can download volume as any custom data, if you have a provider, I'm doing that. 

If you need to get volume from multiple market places, that makes things a little more difficult to aggregate

With the custom volume data, I feed a custom vwap indicator that i use in my strategy

There's actually an easier way, if you are happy to rely on FXCM's or OANDA's volumes and you are happy to run your backtest on a local copy of LEAN:
