GBPUSD Data

#1 Postby seattlerust » Tue Apr 07, 2009 10:49 am

I have been unable to download data for GBPUSD from Alpari for some time now. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Is this something that you can respond to or should I ask Alpari? Thanks.

You should ask Alpari, we can not solve this problem.

Alpari Data

This is the response I received from Alpari:

they are unavaliable through that service atm.
please try to do it from metatrader directly
you can export history from MT if needed.

Prhaps FT should seek another data source.

Data Sources

Yes, I know this. I use them all the time. But the Alpari data is usually later. For instance, look at the link you just sent me. The data is only up to January 2009 and it is now April. The Alpari data includes all of March at this time. (Except for the GBPUSD)

Oops, I think that person who updated this data put incorrect date there. We update this page every month. It is updated up to 1st of March now, today I will update it up to 1st of April.
