Historic EOD FX data

Post by ladadriver » Sun Apr 05, 2009 4:58 pm

Hi,

I'm looking to backtest crude palm oil as part of a global portfolio, and need historic EOD Malaysian Ringgit data to feed in to Trading Blox. CSI lists USD/MYR on FINEX, but it's inactive. Oanda offers historic FX data in 500 day chunks, which I can stitch together and massage into the right format to cover the whole backtesting period, but this is a bit of a hassle. Does anyone know of another source/approach for historic EOD FX data?

CSI has it, but they spell it wrong. Search for ringit.

Be sure to look amongst the "Cash" instruments (yellow box), get a list of them by clicking the "Mkts" button (red box)
