Forex tick data shows the real non-simplified market conditions. If the price changed 45 times during the current candlestick then you need to see all those changes. 1-min data will only show 4 prices to you: open, high, low and close.
Example: imagine that you are using a short-term strategy or a scalping strategy. You use a free Forex data feed that provides you with just 4 prices on each 1-min candlestick. For long-term strategies this option is sufficient, but what if your trade lasts for less than one minute? Most of the scalpers close their orders in 20-30 seconds and each tick is incredibly important for the final result. With Forex tick data you will also get that specific feeling as if you are trading online. This is a crucial factor in your psychological growth as a trader.
Solution: buy historical tick data and trade like on a real market.
Not only do the price and volumes change on the Forex market, but the spread tends to be different depending on the varying circumstances on the market. Before and especially during big news the spread can become altered significantly. You might learn the simplified version of Forex, then go to a real market and find out that your version has nothing to deal with reality.
Solution: purchase high-qualitative historical financial data and get used to the real conditions from the start.
Traders are interested in using the historical financial data of the latest events. It is certainly useful to test your trading system on the historical Forex data of the previous years but most people want to backtest them on yesterday’s historical tick data.
Example1: If today is the 14th of February then you have to wait for 2 more weeks in order to backtest your strategy on the February’s historical Forex rates. With paid services there is an opportunity to download today’s market data feed the next day.
Example 2: You were at work and you’ve missed good trades that happened in the afternoon. You have 2 options: feel bad about it, or download this Forex data feed tomorrow and test how would your strategy perform in those circumstances.

Forex historical data is a must-have tool for back testing and trading. Forex data can be compared to fuel and software that uses this data is like an engine. Without high-quality tick data data package, it is impossible to analyze the market and make trading or backtesting decisions. If the auto does not have any fuel then no matter how great your engine is – it is useless. Most of the people who are into Forex are trying to find tick by tick data. The reason for that is simple: good and classy historical Forex rates can guarantee that your backtesting results are correct. Your strategy can be wonderful but if you do not use good historical market data, you will never know about the quality of this strategy.

In this case, you make decisions and refine your strategy as always but after that you go to the real market and find out that your knowledge and skills do not work there. Probably you will blame your emotions as the cause of these faults. Maybe you will think that it is all about Forex market that changes so quickly and leaves your considerations out-of-date. But there is a chance that the issue is about your Forex data feed. If the market data feed you are currently using leaves much to be desired, then everything is worthless.
We offer 3 types of historical data subscriptions:
Thus, you can always choose the option that suits you the most:
Free historical data is available for anyone who has purchased the Forex Tester license (18 years of historical data for 18 symbols). You can download historical data for the last 18 years from our server and test your strategies on such a long period of time. This data is absolutely enough to understand whether a particular strategy is profitable or not.
Standard subscription and VIP subscription, in their turn, are paid services. These two types of data subscription are more suitable for traders who use trading strategies that depend on even small price fluctuations. As you can see in the comparison table above, both of these paid data services provide you with:
The advantage of the VIP subscription is that it includes tick data with floating spread. Tick data shows all the price changes, even the smallest ones. For example, the price changed 36 times in 1 minute. If you use minute data, you will see 4 prices of this bar: Open, High, Low, Close. If you use tick data, you will notice (in this particular case) all 36 changes.
Historical tick data will also be extremely useful for getting the most accurate results even for non-scalping strategies. Even the smallest price changes affect the results of you testing in a long run. That is why we recommend you to spend some time evaluating different data sources and considering which Forex history data to select.
When you have decided to purchase Forex historical data from our web source, you will probably notice that it is more profitable to subscribe for several months of data at a time. Forex data as any other product is cheaper if you buy many items at once.
Therefore, our tick data package, as well as 1-min data, has three different purchase types: you can get 1 month or 12 months of the well-picked and organized historical Forex data, or get the unlimited access to our minute or tick-by-tick data (by purchasing a lifetime license). In case if you take Forex seriously and you are sure that you will be on the currency market for your entire life, you should consider purchasing 12 months of historical market data or the lifetime data package.
Those who have selected 12 months will save about 40% of the price depending on the subscription type to the Forex data feed (in comparison with the 1-month subscription). When purchasing the lifetime subscription, you pay just once, and in comparison with the 1-month subscription, your money will be compensated less than in 1 year.
