How Forex tick data can change your Forex vision for best

Forex Tester allows you to import an unlimited number of currency pairs and years of history data in almost any possible text format (ASCII *.csv, *.txt).

We strongly recommend importing 1-minute data for accurate testing (it is possible to import higher timeframes but testing results may not be as good).

Note: To increase the quality of testing, we recommend using specific M1 or even tick data, as it will give you almost 100% quality of testing. You can download data from our Data Service.

What are the advantages of our paid data services?

We offer two types of paid data services so that our users could select the best option that meets their trading needs: Standard data and VIP data.

In comparison with our free historical data, both of these paid services provide you with:

  • a much bigger number of symbols for backtesting – as many as 860 different symbols, including currency pairs, stocks, indexes, commodities, futures, cryptocurrencies and metals. It is 50 times more than our free data package includes!
  • a wider range of options when using our Historical News service:
    • historical news for 9 main currency pairs (free data package provides users with historical news for the USD currency only)
    • ability to see more types of news: all the events of low, medium and high importance
  • more precise backtesting results: it is extremely important for trading strategies that depend even on small price fluctuations
  • daily updates: you can even backtest the yesterday’s data
  • 5-digits historical data

On top of all these benefits, our VIP data package provides you with the tick-by-tick data with floating spread. By purchasing this package, you receive the most detailed price rates as they are on the real market. It is the best decision for scalping and short-term strategies.
