Releasing a Decade of Forex Tick Data I Crawled and Converted

Releasing a Decade of Forex Tick Data I Crawled and Converted


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!

Download Links:

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.
Torrent File: https://drive.google.com/file/d/18ymZWeFLJK7FggK_iiWZ-TxgWIVdJVvv/view?usp=sharingCompanion Blog Post: https://www.driftinginrecursion.com/post/dukascopy_opensource_data/

Stats Overview:

Totals Quantities
Total Files 463
Total Line Count 8,495,770,706
Total Data Points 33,983,082,824
Total Decompressed Size 501 GB
Total Compressed Size 61 GB

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.


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 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.


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.


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.


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


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.

Revolution in online poker is about to happen

Many of us enjoy playing poker with the friends, colleagues or just random people as it is quite a fun way to spend time. However, there are actually people that make their living out of poker.
There are quite many sources that describe the earnings of the poker players and their net worth, but so far it seems that the top 5 richest poker players (whose income is mostly driven by the winnings) are:

5 – Joe Hachem ($11.8 million)

4 – Sam Trickett ($16.6 million)

3 – Erik Seidel ($17.2 million)

2 – Antonio Esfandiari ($22.9 million)

1 – Phil Ivey ($100 million)

Even though the biggest tournaments are happening offline, the largest volumes are dealt in various online poker rooms. It may be quite challenging to become a poker millionaire without winning one of the main poker events, yet there are many people that can afford luxurious life simply by playing a few dozens of hands each day. However, today we will not be looking at the poker players, but we are going to focus on the poker industry from the insider’s perspective and see how quickly it can be changed in the future.
A quick overview
Throughout the history, online poker industry has been dominated by the PokerStars brand, and the only company that was competing with it was FullTilt poker. However, in mid 2011 FullTilt went bankrupt and was acquired by PokerStars. Since then, its leadership has been disputed.
Today, there are many online casino brands launching their own poker rooms, yet when combined they are taking a much smaller market share than PokerStars. However, there are quite some drastic changes coming up and it does seem that even PokerStars may not be ready.
Europe represents the largest market for online poker and recently there were some regulations passed regarding online gambling. While those laws actually make internet gambling legal, they come with such harsh requirements that many companies have decided to simply skip these markets and focus on their operations in the other countries.
Apart from that, the technology behind the online poker rooms has been lacking some development when it is compared against the other companies in the iGaming sector or other sectors of Information Technology.
Today we are going to explain you how Cash Poker Pro can tackle all of these issues and become a successful competitor of PokerStars in the very near future. But before we begin, let us quickly tell you what Cash Poker Pro is all about.
Cash Poker Pro in a nutshell
Cash Poker Pro (or CPP for short) is an online poker room that is available through various instant messengers (such as Whatsapp, Telegram, WeChat etc) and also as a web app. It lets people play poker online using a decentralised technology. Yes, we are talking blockchain here.
Considering the CPP’s technology, it can operate in any possible location as long as at least one of the supporter messenger apps is available there. Besides that, CPP deliver a great level of transparency and trust, as there is absolutely no way the company can manipulate the results of the game. Finally, CPP can provide great gaming experience at the fraction of the costs when compared to any other alternative on the market. Now let’s take a look at how exactly it will revolutionise the world of online poker.
Available anywhere
Cash Poker Pro is designed to be available at any possible device, at any possible location, and at any possible jurisdiction. These are the main reasons that landed Cash Poker Pro a title of the best October’s ICO at ForexNewsNow rating.
There are a few challenges faced by the iOS and Android developers. First of all, it is pretty damn hard to design the apps that deliver identical experience. In most of the cases, one of the OS will receive an inferior version. Secondly, the hardware itself is quite an issue. This is why it is so common to see unsupported apps in the Play Market or App Store when using a dated device. Finally, it is still up to Google and Apple to allow the listing of your application, and in most of the cases, you will not be allowed to bring in a gambling app into the Store.
Cash Poker Pro eliminates this barrier by letting the players participate in the game via the messaging apps. Such apps are available in every country, no matter whether online poker is allowed or prohibited there. Besides that, all of the smart-type of the devices support the messaging apps as those are the core component.
Considering that CPP is decentralised, it can operate in all of the dark, grey and regulated areas likewise.
Keen to invest?
Not only CPP is great for the players, it is also amazing for the possible investors. Unlike all of the old fashioned companies, CPP gives you an opportunity to become a partial owner of the poker room by purchasing the tokens during Cash Poker Pro ICO. It is based on Ethereum and it has already been backed by 400,000 USD of investments during the pre-ICO stage. Its goal is to raise 30,000,000 USD by selling 60,000,000 tokens under the symbol CASH.
