Historical Forex Data

  1. I'm wanting to test one of my trend following strategies on as many pairs as I can, including exotics.

    Unfortunately, TS only offers me about 12 pairs to backtest on...

    I am willing to pay for intraday data, so if anyone has any favorites that they've used, please let me know...

    They have to be able to export to ASCII or Metastock format...

    You should be able to back-test on the six main pairs. The others are too thin to worry about.

    I am looking for data too. Have any luck?
  4. Anything free? Doesn't have to be great, but something intraday

    give that a try. You may want to manually clean the data somewhat but most of it is pretty good, not sure if it'll have all the pairs you'll want

    Seriously, how did you determine this?

    And what are the six main pairs?
