Its filled with gaps, and on occasion, massive tick spikes.
If you use it, its best to upload it to MT4 and go through the D1 chart and check it all.
This is not uncommon in their data. I think the Metatrader server data is better for making D1 strategies. You get more data, and less gaps, usually none.

Histdata seems to have good data. To change the timezone import it to metatrader and adjust the time-shift, then export it.

Personally none of my strategies are any lower than m15 (just 1 is m15), mostly H1 and up, so I’m fine with using metatrader server data. Believe it or not, in a lot of instances I found it to have less issues than dukascopy data.

I also do use a lot of dukascopy data. I just check it by testing strategies on it in MT4 visual mode or just opening charts and going through them in D1. The gaps and spikes are obvious. You can check if a gap is “real” but looking at the dates.
