Tick Data Downloader

Developer: FXCM

The Tick Data Downloader is a stand-alone app that allows you to quickly import large amounts of tick data directly from FXCM servers.  This app is designed and optimized specifically for tick data and has the ability to access data for 39 currency pairs, as well as CFD instruments.

Additionally, this download package includes the Historical Data Downloader – Advanced version

  • Bid and Ask data available
  • .CSV, MT4, Ninja, and Custom data formats available
  • Weekend data on/off switch

* CFDs are not available to residents of the US or its territories. As such, accounts held with Forex Capital Markets LLC (FXCM US) do not have access to CFD data.

Many tick data downloads contain over one million records. Microsoft Excel allows a maximum import of only 1,048,576 rows, therefore the data may need to be reformatted or a different application should be used to manage larger sets of tick data.


The following are inputs available in the application:

  • Start Date:the date defining the start of the data range
  • End Date:the date defining the end of the data range
  • Start Time:the time defining the start of the data range
  • End Time:the time defining the end of the data range
  • Currency:the designated symbol
  • Type of Data:specifies bid or ask data
  • File Format: specifies the import file format
  • Output Directory:specifies the destination folder for downloaded data
  • Offset from UTC: specifies the time offset from GMT
