How to Download Dukascopy Tick Data with JForex Platform

How reliable are free sources for historical data?

Has anyone used free sources like histdata.com, dukascopy, forexsb to train models or backtest their algos?
I am working on training a model to trade forex pairs. Still experimenting with the idea and don’t want to invest in an data api before I have a solid strategy.
Wondering if I can make use of this data to test the model with this data and move on to test the model with something paid afterwards OR just go with a single data source as best practices would say.
Thanks in advance!

Dukascopy/Tickstory forex volume data is not trading volume

Getting Dukascopy / Tickstory forex data (I think the most famous free source of forex tick data), I noticed that the tick data csv has "bid volume" and "ask volume" columns.
Getting bar data for them, the "volume" column is just the sum of the "bid volume" of all ticks in the bar.

The way I understand the tick data, "bid volume" and "ask volume" are not real trading volumes, but rather the quantities in the top level of the order book (highest bid and lowest ask). If this is true, the "volume" data column in the bar data is very misleading, and this very famous and widely used data source does not contain 1) actual trading prices 2) trading volume.
Am I missing something? Dukascopy data can be obtained here: https://www.dukascopy.com/plugins/fxMarketWatch/?historical_data

Best bid & ask size data for forex available?

Hi,
Currently, I use Dukascopy free forex data to train an algorithm. The data contains bid & ask price and bid & ask volume for all ticks. As far as I understand, bid & ask volume is the trading volume and not the best bid & ask size (the amount which is offered for the best price).
Does anyone know of a data source which contains the bid & ask size as well? Generally, I am willing to pay something for it provided I get a half a year of historical data first for free (or for a reasonable fixed price) to test if it is useful at all.
So, I need the following:
- Historical forex data (tick or 1s-15s bars)- Live forex data (tick or at 1s-15s bars)- Columns: time, bid & ask price, bid & ask size, bid & ask trading volume

Any suggestions?

Edit: I am a student. Maybe that helps to get free data from a expensive provider? :-)
