I have been looking for free or paid json data feeds on currencies for long.

I have come across:

  • currencylayer.com
  • Oanda
  • XE

The problem is that I really need millisecond based updates.

Can someone advice me on the way forward?

  • $\begingroup$ What you require simply doesn't make sense, unless you own a server right next to the one driving the FX exchange in the region you're interested in. Just try to ping any server and you will have a log of at least ~30 ms. What exactly are you trying to do? $\endgroup$ – not2qubit Dec 27 '19 at 17:41

You could try True FX or open an account with Interactive Brokers

If you want millisecond updates, you need to use technologies other than json.

There are so called mid-rate reference price providers who eventually offer newsfeeds, however, the answer will very likely be a commercial service.

The otehr path would be to contact liquidity providers and / or exchanges directly and ask for API / feed access , which again , will most likely be a commercial service.

https://Polygon.io has FX real-time and historic APIs.

WebSockets for real-time updates, and RESTful API for historic data.
