More brokers

Every trader needs to backtest their strategy on the historical Forex data of their broker.

Example: imagine that you are a boxer and you train hard 7 days a week preparing for the fight. You watch videos of the fights of your opponent, learn his specific moves, invent methods to neutralize his strong points and strengthen your weak points. Then you get in the ring and all of a sudden you discover that you are going to fight an opponent you’ve never seen before. Somehow the people who are in charge of the fight changed the guy you had to fight with to another boxer. All your preparations were completely useless: you are frustrated and shocked at the same time. The same thing happens on Forex if you trained yourself on the data of one broker and afterwards traded on the historical market data of another one.

Solution: to avoid this unnecessary issue you would use the historical Forex rates of your broker from the very beginning. Our paid market data feed is taken from 12 different brokers for the most accurate results.

More symbols

Every trader should have the choice of which trading instrument to choose.

No one should be limited only to the most common currencies. There are a lot of traders who want to trade majors and most popular crosses. But there are also plenty of people who want to trade the currencies of their countries. Others desire to learn how to trade very rare currency pairs, popular stocks, indexes and commodities.

Forex Tester’s paid services allow you to get all 814 symbols (instead of 18 symbols of the beginner subscription type). Why go for less when you can get more with some decent payment? Trade gold, Dow Jones Industrial Index and Russian Ruble; make use of silver, IBM stocks, Honk Kong dollar and S&P 500.

Solution: Every dollar you spend on your education will be multiplied afterwards. Never refuse to invest in your knowledge and skills!

Tick data

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.

Floating spread

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.

Daily update

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.

Solution: Do not wait for months – buy it now.

High-quality data

We honestly declare that our free service data from Forexite broker is of a medium quality. It is a fair limitation for our clients – it distinguishes serious traders from amateurs because serious traders will get the high-quality data.

Some people often complain that they have to purchase the data additionally to Forex Tester. But when you buy a car you do not expect to get a free lifetime gasoline supply. You might get just a bit of gasoline to start with, but afterwards you have to buy more. We provide free lifetime gasoline (data) for your strategies. If you want to get the best data then you can purchase it from our site.

Solution: getting the paid data provides you with the most comprehending and qualitative tool.

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. Just imagine the situation when you use bad historical Forex data. 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.

Tick by tick data for backtesting scalping strategies

Forex Tester gives you an opportunity to get the best Forex historical data. Download it from our server right now and you will never have to think about technical issues related to the data quality. For those clients who back test scalping strategies, Forex tick data is the number one thing to have.

We offer 3 types of historical data subscriptions:

  • Basic subscription (free minute data)
  • Standard subscription (minute data of high quality)
  • VIP subscription (minute and tick data of high quality)

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:

  • Accurate data without "shortcomings"
  • Much more symbols for backtesting (800+ symbols)
  • 12 brokers to select from
  • Daily updates for testing "yesterday's data"
  • 5-digits data (3 digits for pairs which include Japanese yen)

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.

Our data can be easily applied to MetaTrader 4. Historical data in MT4 sometimes has gaps and shortcomings. To solve this problem, you can use a better feed than the one your broker provided to you. So there is no need to search for Forex data. Download it from our website and you will never be disappointed.


Order tick-by-tick data for the smallest price possible!

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. As you see, it is better to purchase the whole package of the market data feed: it is more profitable and more convenient.

Our Forex history data includes data for:

  • 7 majors
  • 32 cross pairs
  • 20 commodities
  • 15 metals
  • 56 exotic pairs
  • 112 indexes
  • 2 futures
  • 4 cryptocurrencies
  • and 566 stocks

We give our users an opportunity to have an alternative to Forex historical data. Download this valuable information and back test your trading system on the completely different markets, adapt your strategy and get stable profits using on any financial instrument.

Forex tick data is the best investment one can make into his or her growth as a trader. We spent much of time recording historical tick data from such a huge number of brokers. Use our data that is absolutely compatible with the MT4 historical data. It was never so easy to get Forex data! Download it and start using one of the most accurate and reliable services on the Internet.

*the subscription allows you to download Forex historical data from the very first date in the database till the day your subscription expires. Watch a tutorial on how to use data service here.

If you do not have Forex Tester, you can download data in the CSV format. Free CSV data is are available here.

In addition to historical data, the Forex Tester 4 users have access to our Historical News service. It is useful for traders as it helps them to predict the market moves and plan their trading strategies accordingly.

The news service provides news in accordance with the type of subscription to historical data that the user has selected. Together with the free historical data, all users will get access to the most important historical news for USD. The Standard subscription, in its turn, gives you the opportunity to see news of medium and high importance for the 9 main currencies, while the VIP subscription provides news of low, medium and high importance for the 9 main currencies.
