FOREX Historical Data
Developing a FOREX mechanical trading system requires backtesting. And backtesting requires high quality FOREX historical price data – and plenty of it.
Some of these links point to FOREX data that will work directly with the MetaTrader platform. Other links point to raw historical data. Many of these sites allow you to download price data, including tick data, free of charge.
You can use these resources to accumulate your own copies of historical FOREX data. Having your own local copies of data can lead to faster and better backtesting. This data can be used to test MetaTrader 3.0 and MetaTrader 4.0 Expert Advisors, as well as other platforms for FOREX mechanical trading systems.
Here is the latest list of links to FOREX historical data providers. If you can come across other FOREX historical data providers, please pass the site on to iExpertAdvisor.
