Releasing a Decade of Forex Tick Data I Crawled and Converted

Releasing a Decade of Forex Tick Data I Crawled and Converted

Intro:

In my exploration of the world of big data and I became curious about tick data. Unfortunately, market data is almost always behind a paywall or de-sampled to the point of uselessness. After discovering the Dukascopy API, I knew I wanted to make this data available for all in a more accessible format. Over the course of a few months, I downloaded, cleaned, parsed, and compressed over a decade of Forex tick data on 37 currency pairs and commodities. Today I am happy to finally release the final result of my work to the DataHoarder community!

Warning: I have rented a seedbox for the next 3 months from seedbox.io but I have been having some issues. If you have any issues with the torrent please leave a comment. Also, PLEASE SEED when you are done. This is quite a large data set and I can only push so much data on my own.

About the Data:

The data was collected from https://www.dukascopy.com/ via a public API that allows for the download of tick data on the hour level. These files come in the form of a .bi5 file. The data starts as early as 2004 all the way to 2019.
These files were decompressed, then merged into yearly CSV’s named in the following convention. “AUDCHF_tick_UTC+0_00_2011.csv” or ‘Pair_Resolution_Timezone_Year.csv’
These CSV’s are split into 3 categories “Majors”, “Crosses”, “Commodities”.
Majors, Crosses, and Commodities have had their timestamps modified so that they are in the official UTC ISO standard. This was originally done for a Postgresql database that quickly became obsolesced. Any files that have been modified are appended with a “-Parse”. These timestamps have been modified in the following format.
Millisecond timestamps to UTC +00:00 time [2017.01.01 22:37:08.014] -- [2017-01-01T22:37:08.014+00:00]

User Resources:

For those looking to use this data in a live context or update it frequently, I have included a number of tools for both Windows and Linux that will be useful.

Windows

The ~/dukascopy/resources/windows folder contains a third party tool written in java that can download and convert Dukascopy’s .bi5 files. I have also included the latest zstd binaries from Zstandard Github page.

Linux

Linux is my daily driver in 99% of cases, so I have developed all my scraping tools using Linux only tools. In the ~/dukascopy/resources/linux folder you will find a number of shell script and pyhton3 files that I used to collect this data. There are quite a few files in this directory but I will cover the core ones below.

download-day.py:

This file is used to download a single symbol for a single day and then convert and merge all 24 .bi5 files into a single CSV.

download-year.py

This file is used to download a single symbol for a full year and then convert and merge all .bi5 files into a single CSV.

dukascopy.py

This file contains all the core logic for downloading and converting data from dukascopy.

utc-timestamp-convert.py

This tad slow but works well enough. It requires the pandas project and parses timestamps into the UTC ISO standard. This is useful for those looking to maintain the format of new files with the those in this repo, or those looking to use this in a SQL database.

Where to find quality Forex tick data?

I downloaded EURUSD tick datasets for several years back from Dukascopy and found out that the data is trash. Many missing periods, sudden inexplicable jumps from one hour to 2 hours in the future etc. There's no way for me to fix this, the quality is simply trash.
Where can I find quality Forex tick historical datasets? I found a few sources googling around, but it takes a fuck ton of time to download it and check, it's even riskier if I have to buy it. Does anyone have any proved sources?

How to download free tick data

Dukascopy forex data

I've been trying to get data from the Dukascopy forex historicals for quite some time now, and I'd like to summarize what I've done so far, and what I still need, in order to help anyone else that also wants to use it.
First, just downloading the data is a pain. The URL that you have to get it from is
 https://datafeed.dukascopy.com/datafeed/{PAIR}/{YEAR}/{MONTH}/{DAY}/{HOUR}h_ticks.bi5 {PAIR} is the currency pair, for example "AUDUSD", "EURUSD", or "USDJPY" {YEAR} is the year, for example "2010", "2014", or "2017" {MONTH} is the month, a two digit number. For some reason, months are zero-indexed. For example, "00" corresponds to January, "05" is June, "11" is December. {DAY} is the day of the month, and as far as I can tell, it is NOT zero-indexed. Again, it is two digits wide. {HOUR} is the hour of the day. For some reason, Dukascopy stores each hour of the day separately. It is zero-indexed, so "00" to "23" 
Now that you have a *.bi5 file, you have to extract it. *.bi5 files are lzma compressed files, so find a way to extract them. I used 7z command line.
Now once you've extracted it, you'll notice it's still a binary file. The data is stored in 20 byte wide rows, with each 4 byte segment corresponding to a piece of data. Example:
[ TIME ] [ ASKP ] [ BIDP ] [ ASKV ] [ BIDV ] 0000 0800 0002 2f51 0002 2f47 4096 6666 4013 3333 TIME is a 32-bit big-endian integer representing the number of milliseconds that have passed since the beginning of this hour. ASKP is a 32-bit big-endian integer representing the asking price of the pair, multiplied by 100,000. BIDP is a 32-bit big-endian integer representing the bidding price of the pair, multiplied by 100,000. ASKV is a 32-bit big-endian floating point number representing the asking volume, divided by 1,000,000. BIDV is a 32-bit big-endian floating point number representing the bidding volume, divided by 1,000,000. 
This is how far I've gotten so far before I noticed that something is wrong. The contents of the *.bi5 file do not match the contents of the file that you can download from the official front-end, here: https://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english/marketwatch/historical/ .
For example, the January 8, 2010 *.csv file does not match in any way with the *.bi5 file of the corresponding day. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?
EDIT: Another question is about the hours: what time zone are these files relative to? It seems that the data starts showing up from the last two hours of Sunday, going through the week, and then stopping some time before Friday ends, all relative to whatever timezone this is in.

Dukascopy forex data gaps

Recently I tried to download forex data off of Dukascopy, and I immediately noticed some gaps in the data.
Here is a list of every day that is missing some or all of the data: http://pastebin.com/raw/WZRqSz5R
Is there a reason for this missing data? I've heard that dukascopy is one of the best, so I'm not sure who to turn to next.

Start 2: 8th Failed Attempt and going for the 9th

In my previous post, I started my ventures to make some money. So here's my progress:

Income Stream No. 1: Forex

The system failed and kinda blew my $100 deposit on it. What I've learnt is that:
Did more reading and found that there's a better way to test, build and test again before I can begin selling signal subscription in the MQL market. My next step is to try and implement a Kumo Breakout with IKH. I'm keeping my strategies as simple as possible while the success metrics is that its self-sustainable on its own with less of my own intervention. I can simply test without having to go with a broker first to get my strategy working with quality data (i.e. without renting a VPS and downloading all of the data to my machine for backtesting). By utilising tickstory.com, I can just download all of the Dukascopy tick data and then back test from there. Of course, this is going to be different if I were to trade with a broker account because spreads. Will adjust later but for now, I have to focus on building my signal service.

Income Stream No. 2: Amazon

I have to cancel this and won't follow-through. Instead I'm moving towards Income Stream No. 3 instead. Problem was that I didn't find the time to contact suppliers and ask for rebranding or customization on interested items that I would to sell and resell on Amazon FBA. Family came first so... yeah...

Income Stream No. 3: SaaS

Good news, it's almost ready. Building a multi-tenant app with Django was very tasking on my time especially with the setup. I've had bumps in the past month with my machine not being able to load the configuration set up for my Postgresql Database. I was trying to build a High Availability Cluster set up but it took too long, so I'll have to build that part later. Deploying on AWS is harder than I thought though. Damn security groups, couldn't load properly. I guess I have to hit up Youtube tutorials on AWS for being such a noob.
Bad news, is whats pending at the moment an activated Stripe account. I'm still waiting for my LLC to go through its approval process (registered with a Delaware agent) and should come at any time soon. Once I have an LLC registered, I should be able to apply for an EIN at the same time. So until that happens, I'll need to quickly build my SaaS app with a test Stripe account until it's MVP ready.

In the End

If at first you don't succeed, try again after you learn your mistake(s). Even if it means blowing your deposit and sacrificing sleep!

Do you think someone will buy my C++ source code of a backtest/trade system?

Hi all,
This is not an AD, but I'm asking your opinion whether someone may be interested in my system, or whehter it's worth that I do some work to find a buyer. This is a backtesting and trade system, not strategy.
Main functions and features: * Written in C++, using Qt framework. Can run on Windows, Linux, and Mac. * Console program, very fast. * Currently only support Forex, but it's easy to extend to support other markets, such as Stock. * Backtesting. Candle bar based backtesting. It's not difficult to support tick based backtesting. * Optimization. Currently only brute force is supported, but it's quite easy to plug in other methods. * Walkforward testing. * Multiple threading. OpenMp is used for multithreading, each backtesting task is allocated on a CPU core. * One robot can use multiple instruments and multiple time frames. * Live trading system. Currently Oanda REST API is implemented. One robot can place buy/sell order on different account, to avoid no-hedging limitation. I have used it on my live account, and it works well. * Any more trade platforms should be able to be integrated to the system, such as FIX, but I didnt do any investigation yet. * Some indicators are included. MA, RSI, MACD, PSAR, etc, using ta_lib. New indicators can be developed easily. * Dukascopy data download. Incremental download tick data from Dukascopy, very fast. * Oanda data download. Using Oanda REST API, incremental, very fast. * Simple charting. So the report contains a balance chart, very intuitive. * Some other features, such as convert Dukascopy tick data to internal candle binary data, convert candle data to MT4 CSV, etc. * Unit testing. Some key components are unit tested. * High quality code. I'm an experienced developer. You can check my code quality and style from my open source C++ library, cpgf, on github, though it's not finance related. * Very good performance. The bar based backtesting system is highly optimized. * Since the architecture is good, the system can be used as either a program or a library. * About 50K lines of C++ code. * I spent about one year partial time on it.
My question is, do you think anyone will be interested to buy my source code? And how much do you think I should charge for? Or beside selling the source code, what do you think I can do to earn some money via the system? My original purpose developing such a system is to use by myself, but I'm not sure when I can find a good strategy to earn some money for me.
Thanks

How Should I Model a Spread for Commissions in Simulations?

I'm still doing a lot of backtesting of some software I have been writing to try to trade forex. I got to the point where I realized that I don't understand commissions with forex brokerages. I'm kind of hoping I'm being unnecessarily cruel with myself in the commissions I'm charging to myself.
I have some EURUSD data I downloaded off of dukascopy that I've been using in the simulations. I saw on Oanda their average spread for EURUSD these days is 1.2 pips. It can go down to 0.8 and it sometimes spikes above that. So what I have been doing in the simulation is using the next bar's closing price, plus 0.00012 for my long entrance price. For exiting a position, I use the next bar's closing price, minus 0.00012. I was looking at that and was wondering if I'm actually using a spread of 2.4. Am I being too hard on myself?
I assume that brokerages that charge a spread don't really change anything based on amount of margin used, because it's reflected in the price used in the transactions. Is that true?
I also wondered if brokerages that charge a spread just bake it into the prices in their data feed.
I've seen a lot of advice to just open an account and start trying it out there. I'd like to forward test, but I really don't want to go through all the motions if I've proven my strategy is already too risky for my tastes without all that.

No any recent data available from Dukascopy datafeed?

Hi all,
I used to download Forex data from Dukascopy datafeed. But recently seems it's always 404 not found for any data. For example, http://datafeed.dukascopy.com/datafeed/EURUSD/2016/09/27/10h_ticks.bi5 will result 404. If I change 2016 to 2015, the file can be downloaded.
Had Dukascopy stopped to provide latest data download?
Thanks

Questions on converting GMT+0 data (Dukascopy) to New York close candles

Hi all,
I downloaded Dukascopy historical data. The data is one hour per file and the time zone is GMT+0. I would like to write some program to convert the tick data to New York close candles, such as four hours and daily. In each week the data starts from 23h Sunday to 22h Friday.
I have several questions on the time zone conversion,
1, No matter what session we talk about, one Forex trading week always contain 24*5=120 hours, right?
2, What's the data in each week should be converted to NY close? Since NY is GMT-5, I think the NY week should start from the sixth hour of the week in the GMT+0 data?
3, Then when is the NY week end in the GMT+0 data?
To be clear, we can think the GMT+0 data is, Sunday: 2 hours, Monday~Thursday: 24 hours each day, Friday: 22 hours Then how to split those 120 hours to 5 candles with NY close?
I used TickStory to generate the NY data, but there is some wrong prices which generate very bad result in my back test, so I would like to generate the data by myself.
Thanks
