I know that there's no free service that has this data available for download. I've been using Yahoo Finance, but I've just found out that it has a delay of 15 minutes or so. Is there any way I could get fresher rates somewhere? Say, 5-minute old instead of 15? Many forex brokers offer free "informers" that autoload data in an interval of seconds, so maybe there's a few that allow this data to be downloaded in bigger intervals without the use of their informers strictly for personal use?

Meh 3, 6 36 You have to poll fxcm to see if the rates changed, so it's not real-time. Arron - the only "real-time" quotes are the ones seen by the co-located high-frequency trading algorithms.
