I'm looking for historic data for the euro/usd exchange rate with an hourly interval. The data should look back several months.

Unfortunately I have been unable to find a source providing this data, even paid services. If anyone could suggest a source that does provide hourly information, that'd be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

  • Are you sure they provide hourly ratios? I looked at them and could only find daily values. – Tom Jan 4 '12 at 13:30
  • @Tom I remember that one of them provides hourly data, don't remember which. You may have to do some digging, but I am confident this data can be found. – Tal Fishman Jan 4 '12 at 15:03

    dukascopy historically provides 10s data (and for recent years tick data), that can easily be aggregated into hourly data. – hroptatyr Oct 6 '12 at 13:49
  • A lot of link rot has crept in over 6½ years, unfortunately. Thanks anyhow. – Michael Scheper Jun 19 '18 at 20:21

You didn't specify whether you wanted raw data, or just a website to look it up on. I use XE's currency charts to find what I need; it provides exchange rates to the hour, back for at least a few weeks, and to the quarter-hour in the past few days, for free.

I do wish I had a source of raw data, so I could write a script and just type the date and time I need. I had a quick look at the HTTP responses that page uses and didn't find anything easy, only a long string of alphanumeric characters. I assume the code that interprets it is too obfuscated for it to be worth my time deciphering it, and that doing so would violate their terms of service. So I just mutter as I zoom and scroll around the graph, hover the mouse pointer, and memorise the numerals.
