Genesis Trade Navigator FX Data issues and how to fix them

Since many of you are using Genesis Trade Navigator, I thought this might be of interest. I personally use TN mostly for Futures Data, and only sometimes for Forex data - when I just need a quick daily chart for example where I don't mind about a few pips difference. But I don't use their spot Forex Data for backtests.

Last week Genesis changed the daily closing time of their FX data to 17:00 NYT, which is the standard in Forex - a good decision. But afterwards I noticed many gaps in the charts and found out that there's hours of intraday-data missing on many days. Others reported issues that any data before 2008 was missing. This has been fixed a few days later, but looking a bit more carefully at the data I found out that the daily close would sometimes actually not be at 17:00 NYT.

Yesterday they emailed me back that they fixed the issue and so far things are looking good! Here's the instructions I got from their support team on how to fix the problems: TN-FX-Fix.pdf

You need to download all of the data-sets again which will take some time (for me this meant downloading about 40 GB which took about 2 hours), so it's a good idea to do this during the weekend.

Derivative transactions, including futures, are complex and carry a high degree of risk. They are intended for sophisticated investors and are not suitable for everyone. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results, and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.
