I think the data is fine, by and large. You are probably looking at the open yesterday (sunday). FXCM starts streaming data 2 hours earlier than most other brokers. If you set session start time to 17:00 New York timezone the chart should look like everywhere else.

If broker is not clean, data will also be the same

Bad record

I have had 100+ pip data "spikes" refunded on account of bad data...

Be careful around FX close, as the spreads can swing out to 20-30 pips and level your stops.

For the most part they're not too bad... The SC fix was a great improvement...

IB has FX with low spreads...

These dirty data will affect indicators calculations, very danger!

1 more point the closing of daily price on daily chart is more ridiculous.

SO Can Sierra give other choice of free FX data ? Instead of FXCM ?

Pls give an answer / response

I would seriously look into IQFeed, its a good datafeed. They have 2 levels for FOREX, I have them both, but I use the standard feed series.. anyway, I have been happy with them, and they do offer phone support if you have issues...
