How Forex tick data can change your Forex vision for best

Forex Tester allows you to import an unlimited number of currency pairs and years of history data in almost any possible text format (ASCII *.csv, *.txt) and in MetaTrader4 history format (*.hst).

We strongly recommend importing 1-minute data for accurate testing (it is possible to import higher timeframes but testing results may not be as good).

Note: To increase the quality of testing we recommend using broker-specific M1 or even tick data, as it will give you almost 100% quality of testing. You can download broker-specific data from our Data Service.

Here you can download free history data for the most common currency pairs (source: Forexite. Ltd):

Price: Bid
Time: GMT (no Daylight Saving Time)
Quality: one of the best free sources
