ForexTester Historic Data Service

ForexTester Historic Data Service

If you are using Forex Tester then you know how important good quality data is for back-testing. We have set up a simple download service for historic data either as a one-off "data dump" or a monthly subscription.

  • The data goes back to January 2006 and is updated on a weekly basis.
  • The data is kept in two formats to handle the issue of the differing change-over dates for daylight savings between the US and the UK which lleads to a period of two weeks in the spring and autumn where the two countries are out of synch.:
    a) you can either keep the 8 a.m. London open constant or
    b) you can keep the New Yorkc close constant
  • All pair combinations for the top eight markets are covered as well as a number of CFD's
  • The data is supplied as one minute bars
  • The data is very clean having been extracted from actual tradeable prices from a broker feed.
  • The data is in an ASCII CSV format that can be imported directly into Forex Tester. As it's a CSV file it can also be loaded into e.g. Excel and various other applications. If you'd like it in a different ASCII format then let us know.

just some of the markets available to download


In order to accommodate both one off data-dumpers and also people who want monthly access we have come up with the following price scheme:

1. One off set-up fee 80 GBP

2. Data access per month.20 GBP

NB UK VAT @ 20% may be chargeable on top of these prices depending on your location.

So the minimum cost would be 100 GBP which would give you one month's access so you could just download all the data and then not renew. If you'd like to keep access then it's just 20 GBP per month thereafter
