Thread: Good Historical (Tick) Data Source

  1. #1

    I am seeking to create a pair of automatic trading strategies, but I want to verify that they'll really work together with the pricing anomalies of my current broker, MB Trading. Does anyone have (or know where I could obtain) a tick-by-tick history going back at least a few months?

    While the MBT historic data is probably a long shot, I'm also curious to discover a good (and preferably free or low-cost) historic data source to be used at egy development. It would be preferable to have at least 5 decades of data, and 10 or more is greatest. However 10min or 5 could be adequate, Concerning time-frames, 1min would be ideal.

    Any ideas are greatly appreciated. I am certainly eager to share any successes I've with the systems I develop with the community in exchange for your help with acquiring the data.


    P.S. For the interested, I've a background in biomedical engineering with a focus on computer applications and systems. I've some experience with machine learning (neural networks, bayesian learning, decision trees, etc) and a strong programming background. I took a rest from forex the past few months, but might love to re-approach it from an objective standpoint and endeavor to find some order (or at least a profit ) one of the chaos. Like most traders here, I have had my share of ups and downs in the market, and while I exchange some news and/or bank flow information, I'd love to refine a more hands-off approach. In case you have any ideas you'd like to share or talk about, do not hesitate to shoot me a PM.

    Hi, should I download the tickdata from duka / eareview but I am using a different broker: would the indiors/oscillators levels become those instead of my broker?

    Indiors calculate using price data. If you're using price information from dukascopy not the broker the response is yes. BTW - I urge SQ Tick Downloader to dl lots of tick information.
