Hi,

You are currently offering "180 calendar days of tick history"

I believe that it's not enough. Why? Because custom bars are built from tick history and getting 6 months of these bars isn't enough for serious Forex backtests.

I understand that it will increase data traffic, but keep in mind that internet speed and computers CPU power are getting faster each day (+ SSDs, no more hard disks), hence I believe it's time to update your offer and consider my request to definitely beat DTN competition.

You may believe that it will incur additional ISP costs but this is wrong.
ISPs competition offers have never been so high and I'm pretty sure that your company's boss is able to negotiate this additional traffic bandwidth for free with same of higher speed...

Thanks
