Forex Tick Data

I am using Interactive Brokers who provide 6 months of tick data, with irritating pacing restrictions, plus their data, as I understand, is sampled (every 200ms?).

I need at least a year of reliable data (main pairs). Will appreciate suggestions.

Forex Tick Data

I say forget about tick data on FX minute is better. Forex tick data doesn't mean anything. DTN IQFEED has great FX data IMHO I believe it from FXCM on the Standard FX package. Years and years of it something like 20 or 30 plenty.

I broker with IB for futures and FXCM for FX. IB is not about the data that's why they don't put much effort into it and limit it so much.

You can also open an acct with FXCM and get their data included if that is an option for you so it's the same as IQFEED, basically.

Try this service: TrueFX — Tick-By-Tick Real-Time And Historical Market Rates, Clean, Aggregated, Dealer Prices seems to be a reliable source of institutional market makers (interbank).

It seems they have specific years under their downloads.

Thank you,
