How to Access FXCM Brokerage Data

Hello!

I'm running the "Lean-Master" Visual Studio solution locally, and I'm trying to get real-time data (or at least current data) for the Spot Forex market. Yahoo and Google don't seem to provide the data I need.

Is there a way I can tap into the FXCM data stream directly? I already have an account with FXCM.

Alternatively, can you recommend a means by which I can download recent Forex market data for consumption by my local solution?

So, I figured out how to download my own data using the QuantConnect.ToolBox.FxcmDownloader tool.
Very helpful indeed! Great work!

Is there a way I can just plug into the same Fxcm data stream to use the data live? Or do I always have to use the .csv files?

Hi Mark, you'll need to set the FXCM brokerage as the live data queue handler. Check out how this is done with IB here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/lean-engine/V3x_1NGpUhw
