I would try IQfeed as a dataprovider, i think their FX feed is very reasonably priced and then
historical (reload) will be the same as the realtime (level1)

For FX there is also the fact that the trades are not centrally cleared, this means that somebody
buying the same FX pair on another broker/bank can see a slightly different price, there is no
such thing in FX of a one and only exact price... The best thing you can do is tap the price from
a large liquidity provider, as arbitrage will level away the differences

just my 2 cents

On the other hand, FX futures would be always (theoretical) the same price, it's central cleared
