Historical FOREX Data

Historical FOREX data is very important for any FOREX trader who back-tests his or her strategies before applying them to the real live account. Historical FOREX data is usually represented as japanese candlestick or bar chart in a trading platform such as MetaTrader. Many terminals combine historical FOREX data with real live data, which makes a chart dynamic. On these charts you see current changes and history at the same time. It’s very convenient since you can use the same chart to do technical analysis, and place orders.

For strategy back-testing you use historical FOREX data only. You choose a time interval, and test your strategy on it. You can use a chart and a piece of paper to test any strategy, however to save time, you can use Strategy Tester for FOREX.
