Topic: Not enough data available from broker
I'm having difficulty finding a UK broker that gives enough data for backtesting.
I should mention that I'm only looking at demo data at the moment, but it usually only goes back two weeks, which is obviously not enough.
I posted a while ago about this, and Blaiserboy said he doesn't bother looking at broker data until he's found a strategy he's interested in, which sounds fair enough, and probably the way I'll try first until, if and when, I find something i prefer more, but it bothers me that the best data I can currently find from a UK broker is only two weeks.
I've dug around on Google a bit, and found that there is a method of downloading around 3 years of tick data from Dukascopy or similar, and converting it to be uploaded to your broker's MT4 Terminal - here: https://eareview.net/tick-data
My head is swimming with questions at the moment while I try to figure it out, but things I'm wondering are:
1) Do I even need to do this, given that the FSB data is already from Dukascopy?
2) Is it even possible to "tell" a broker what their data is?
3) Would doing this mess with the way FSB Pro works?
