Hi,

today I've been asked by a systematic trader where to get historical tick data with a reasonable quality and the possibility to hook up to the same feed in real-time.

Check out the following link:

However, always remember that the more sensitive your system is to the price, the more you need to make sure you test on data you can also deal on.
