If it is forex data only you are worried about, I'd probably develop and trade with MC's data.

At the start of all this craziness, my wife and I told my 10, 12 and 14 year old our expectations: DO YOUR ONLINE WORK, without Mom and Dad reminding you. So far, so good.

It goes back to the days when Tradestation first started, and backtesting (not automated live trading) was all there was. At that time "setexitonclose" was great for backtesting.
