Missing data

Post by Bigricky1 »

I recently purchased tickstory and have found missing data in a few pairs. Most of June 2007 on the EURAUD is missing and there seems to be lots of gaps on AUDCAD in 2007 and 2008. I looked in the actual DL folder in tickstory and the EURAUD data is not there (All the other data is there for the pair.). I have cleared everything and tried DL again and still not working. I signed up for a Dukascopy demo and checked the data at the same time to make sure that they didnt have a hole in their original data and it is all fine. It seems to be missing at your end. Please advise. Thank you

Hi Bigricky,

If you go back further in time (especially 10+ years), some of Dukascopy's tick data can be patchy at times. If you use their own "Historical Data Downloader" (https://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english ... istorical/) and select the date 6th of June 2007 (ensuring you select '1-Tick' data time-frame), the data is empty.

Presumably Dukascopy have have tried to back-fill their bar/candle data (15-minute, etc) with information from other sources, however this information would not obviously not be useful for tick back-testing purposes. We have also had reports that this candle data is not always complete/reliable.

The only solution at this stage if you need "complete" charts is to omit these earlier years.

Hope this helps.
