Historical data

Postby arjfca » 29 Jan 2011

Hello

I want to test my stategy over an un-seen data collection. I'm trying to source 1 minute data on EurUsd previous than January 2010.

I did find 1 week data from Dukascopy,com, But it is difficult to work with many 1 week file. Any suggestion where i could get historical quote for a whole year.

http://ratedata.gaincapital.com/
FX-Tick data

or

http://global.fxdd.com/de/mt1m-data.html
import it to MT4 and convert/export it to .csv
You have to use the new version of Excel and not OpenOffice since the old Excel and OO have the limitation of 65k lines. In this way you get M1 data which you ask for.

Well the tick data from gaincapital is less complicated since you can already download it on csv format and it goes back to the year 2000.

Here is a huge collection:

Once unzipped, the data may be imported directly.

It is free, and (at lease the majors are) of reasonable quality.
