Data Consistency & Format

A main concern when purchasing historical Forex and Futures Tick Data is whether the data all the way through history remains comparable.  In other words does data collected in 1965 still reflect the same format and consistency all the way through history?

At Portara we make sure that all timestamps are contiguous and follow the same format and pattern all the way through the commodities and contracts we supply.  Furthermore, over past decades the tick size and other nuances can cause hereditary problems when contrasting data from a contract 30 years ago with data from a contract today. Again, Portara accounts for these discrepancies and natural movements so that all the data supplied can be matched.

Lastly, data in many markets such as US Financials, Meats and early Grains used to be price fractionalised.  Portara supplies only decimalised price data so you are able to import the data through any modern conduit, whether it has been created in-house or is a recognised software brand.

From a technical angle, our intention at Portara is to make the purchase and acquisition of Tick Data as painless as possible.
