Is anyone familiar with a quality tick database? Free if possible.

I've been searching a lot lately, but can't find a good one. I'm thinking of creating my own.

well i've heard that gain capital offers the largest database however it's not the best as it has a lot of gaps.

you can also get some data from Oanda.

on both cases however you will need to open an account.

The one at Dukascopy is free for personal use. https://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english/data_feed/historical/ 😉

Thanks!

I've haven't had the time to test it yet. Have you worked with it? Is it reliable?

Yeah tried both. Problem with Oanda is that you can get only one free pair data at a time and it goes only back to 2004.

I have worked with it, and I believe the data from Dukascopy is the most reliable you can get for free. 😎

Why are ticks worth looking for?

With good quality tick data, you can achieve 99% backtest modelling quality. At present MT4 can only achieve 90% because you cannot get below the M1 bar level......MT4 mathematically interpolates the numbers below this level which leads to inaccurate testing, especially with scalpers.
