Any reliable forex historical paid data (tick/min/hour) ?

Hello,
I'm looking for the 'perfect feed' to backtest forex strategies. The data should be tick or at least 1 or 5 min data minimum and with as much historical as possible. But most of all, the data should not contain any hole in it, like the dukascopy one.. (which is free btw). I'm ok to pay for that, what are my options ?
Thx !

As you say Dukas is OK for free, but not perfect.
I'd say best paid data is:
Historical Intraday Tick by Tick Data | Stock Market Data | Historical Futures, Equities, Index and Options Data
Download the tickwrite demo to make sure you can output data in your chosen format.
No FX data as such, but currency futures are near enough the same.
6E in particular is pretty much no different to a decent EURUSD feed.

Other data vendors:
OlsenData: Welcome
Global Financial Data
https://www.cqgdatafactory.com/?page=pricing
Tickdatamarket

All the above is paid for historical data.
Certain brokers will allow you to pull a limited amount (1-2 yrs max) via a price feed.
MBT allow clients to DL about 2 years worth of tick data as well.
TBH though a couple of years of data is not really enough imo.
Better to pay for a decent historical database.

riton started this thread Thanks Liquid validity, I'll have a look at these.
MBT = MbTrading? That's the one I'm going to use.

Search for MetaTrader platform - most brokerages will provide free historical data download via MetaTrader for a free demo account.

Otherwise - Interactive Brokers. This tool let's you download data without having to code against IB API..

You should try http://intradata.co, they have 1 minute bars from 2012 until now. I use them and the data is perfect. All 70 currency pairs are there. Also for daily bars. I use them for my backtestings and it is simple to download them with their FTP client.
