Historical forex TICK data

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by thetrendfollowe, Jul 2, 2008.

  1. Hi everyone,

    I require historical tick data for several forex pairs.
    Does anybody know where I can get this from?

    Ideally it should go back several years.

    Has anybody looked at these guys?

    Forextickdata.com have only 5 second data at best for individual traders doing less than 1 billion per month.

    And Open Tick is not taking on any more clients.

    Any other options?

    Many thanks,

    Nizar.
     
  2. Opentick doesn't have Forex data anyway, only futures and stocks.

    Put $1000 in an Oanda account and you get tick data for free. No, I'm not shilling for Oanda, just sayin'.

    Oanda's tick-data is very clean, im using it in Neoticker. Unfortunately there are only 5 pairs available.

    You can also buy historic tick data for every instrument available on Tenfore (including various single-bank feeds and also HotspotFXi) - but it will cost $20 per instrument per month.
     
  4. How many years back does Oanda's tick data go ?

    From 1.Jan 2004 to 2 month before the actual date.
     
  6. Thanks for your suggestion.
    I have sent Tenfore an email.
    $20/month per pair is quite reasonable I think.

    Sorry, i just checked my mails again, the quote was EUR 20 not USD 20 per pair per month.
     
  8. Tenfore have tick data going back almost 5 years for all the pairs which I require.

    Thanks for your suggestion.
