Every trader needs to backtest their strategy on the historical Forex data of their broker.
Example: imagine that you are a boxer and you train hard 7 days a week preparing for the fight. You watch videos of the fights of your opponent, learn his specific moves, invent methods to neutralize his strong points and strengthen your weak points. Then you get in the ring and all of a sudden you discover that you are going to fight an opponent you’ve never seen before. Somehow the people who are in charge of the fight changed the guy you had to fight with to another boxer. All your preparations were completely useless: you are frustrated and shocked at the same time. The same thing happens on Forex if you trained yourself on the data of one broker and afterwards traded on the historical market data of another one.
Solution: to avoid this unnecessary issue you would use the historical Forex rates of your broker from the very beginning. Our paid market data feed is taken from 10 different brokers for the most accurate results.
Every trader should have the choice of which trading instrument to choose.
No one should be limited only to the most common currencies. There are a lot of traders who want to trade majors and most popular crosses. But there are also plenty of people who want to trade the currencies of their countries. Others desire to learn how to trade very rare currency pairs, popular stocks, indexes and commodities.
Forex Tester’s paid services allow you to get all 118 symbols (instead of 18 symbols of the basic subscription type). Why go for less when you can get more with some decent payment?

Solution: Every dollar you spend on your education will be multiplied afterwards. Never refuse to invest in your knowledge and skills!
Forex tick data shows the real non-simplified market conditions. If the price changed 45 times during the current candlestick then you need to see all those changes. 1-min data will only show 4 prices to you: open, high, low and close.
Example: imagine that you are using a short-term strategy or a scalping strategy. You use a free Forex data feed that provides you with just 4 prices on each 1-min candlestick. For long-term strategies this option is sufficient, but what if your trade lasts for less than one minute? Most of the scalpers close their orders in 20-30 seconds and each tick is incredibly important for the final result. With Forex tick data you will also get that specific feeling as if you are trading online. This is a crucial factor in your psychological growth as a trader.
Solution: buy historical tick data and trade like on a real market.
Not only do the price and volumes change on the Forex market, but the spread tends to be different depending on the varying circumstances on the market.

Solution: purchase high-qualitative historical financial data and get used to the real conditions from the start.
