    Default Forex - Backtesting

    I'm interested if anyone has experience with backtesting forex data.

    I have some mechanical systems I'm ready to backtest with forex data. I have trialled them with demo accounts (not live yet) and have had good results, now I want to stress test them.

    What software is the million dollar (euro) question!

    How much historical data do you have? Is it daily or intraday? I would be interested where you got it from for my own purposes.....please

    As far as software, I don't think you can go past amibroker for the price.
