The Tick Data Downloader (“TDD”) is a stand-alone app that allows you to import large amounts of quality tick data directly from FXCM servers with precision as high as 300 ticks per second.* 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
*In cases where there were more than 300 ticks during a single second, Tick Data Downloader will download the final 300 ticks that occurred during that second, omitting ticks occurring at the beginning of that second.
**User must be subscribed to the desired instruments via Trading Station in order to see them listed in HDD or TDD. After subscribing to the desired symbols, restart HDD/TDD so that the changes will be reflected.
Due to the voluminous amount of tick data, it is recommended to limit individual downloads to 2-3 weeks of data at a time, and then merge the data together as desired.
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:
