Darwinex tick data support

Hi,

Darwinex has released its historical tick database for FX+CFD+crypto, which is available for free for download via FTP access
https://www.darwinex.com/tick-data

The downloaded data is separated day to day instead of one aggregated file with custom date set, which makes it convenient for quick treatment without further processing.

Wish you could adapt Tickstory to Darwinex, even release an alternate version dedicated to it, because Darwinex is a far superior broker to Dukascopy… They just do not compete in the same league !

Thanks for your understand

Hi Bernardfruler,

Going through their sign-up process, it doesn't appear that their data is "free free" and requires you to go through opening an account. While this doesn't necessarily stop us from considering writing a data-source plugin for them, it will depend on how many users are out there actually using them.

If anyone would like to +1 for this plugin, please let us know.

Thanks.

Hi again, indeed I should have indicated that you have to register and verify, although it is not required to start funding.

Anyway, wouldn’t you be able to use a single access to collect data, eventually stock it and redispatch amongst your software users ? Probably, there a few ways to imagine an integration

I regret that Tickstory is not going to proactively support Darwinex tick data

There seems to be much demand, as can be seen here with latest exchange of views & developments

Hi Bernard,

Thanks for the info. Not sure where we said we couldn't/wouldn't support this ;) To be honest, there seemed to be some brigading of this thread so we weren't sure if there was genuine interest or people just trying to promote Darwinex ;)

The discussion definitely seems to suggest there is interest. If the Darwinex guys were open to providing us with a generic login to test with, we'd definitely explore this further.
Are you part of the team or could you assist with this?

Thanks.

No sorry : info@darwinex.com

Otherwise, I believe you can access the data as long as you’re verified. No need for initial deposit yet. It should be explained on that forum thread or their blog https://blog.darwinex.com/download-hist ... tick-data/

Hi Bernard,

Thanks for the email info. We have sent an email directly to Darwinex and will let you know the outcome.
Unfortunately it's not a production solution to use a personal account so we will see if Darwinex can provide some sort of permanent access.

Regards.

Got feedback ?
Did you manage an agreement to make it happen ?

Hi Bernard - Good news. We're in contact and working out the details. We'll keep this thread updated as things progress.
Just to temper your expectations, we do have several priority items on our development task list before looking at this. Rest assured, work is still being done behind the scenes ;)

Thanks.
