I continue my investigation for a good tick feed for FOREX.

In order to appreciate the "density" of some feeds, I have counted the number of 500-tick bars they provided for EUR/USD in the 2-hour time window this morning (May 9th, 2012) between 09:00 and 11:00 (French time).

I am aware that it has no statistical value. It was just "to see".

Results:
- LMAX: 93 500-tick bars in 2 hours for EUR/USD
- MB Trading feed: 77 500-tick bars in 2 hours for EUR/USD << UPDATE
- FXCM within eSignal feed: 61 500-tick bars in 2 hours for EUR/USD
- ProRealTime: 38 500-tick bars in 2 hours for EUR/USD
- Interactive Brokers (Ideal Pro): 21 500-tick bars in 2 hours for EUR/USD
