Topic: Longer Market Data needed and to Analyse 350,000 bars with FSB.
I have developed several strategies, however I want to back test them for a longer period.
I use 5-minute and 1-hour bars strategies.
For the 5-minute bars strategies, the longest history data I've found (from MT4 Alpari-UK) is for about 10 months back. In addition, the FSB analyses 50,000 bars max.
I would like to test the strategies during the last 3 (or even 5) years, but I don't know from where to get the data and how to analyse more than 200,000 bars (for 5 years - approx. 350,000 bars).
For the 1-hour bars strategies, I tested the last 3 years already, however I would like to go further here and test 5-10 years back. I have the same problems - I cannot find the history data required (5 to 10 years history) and I am also going to need to analyse approx. 100,000 bars.
I guess you guys have been through this as well, and I will appreciate your advice and sharing experience!!!
