After this the Folder browser in Tickstory should show these files. As an aside, you might want to think about installing your MT4 to a more "standard" location as it ...

Re: Setting/metatrader location

Hi Seiangoku,

You should be setting the location where the application is installed - for example, "C:\Program Files (x86)\Metatrader". Once this is set, Tickstory will automatically detect the location of your Data Folder.

Hope this helps.

Re: Please explain tick export time stamp

Hi TraderBuilder,

That doesn't sound right. Are you sure you are not inadvertently using the "mm" specifier for the hour instead of 24-hour "HH"?
If you send us a screenshot of the format you are using we can assist further.

Thanks.

Re: i am seeing NA for quality

Hi - You can switch your MT4 terminal in the settings and launch. Once you have done this for both terminals, you can back-test as normal. Launch is only required once on the initial start of a MT4 terminal instance.
Thanks.

Re: Always copy symbol properties during mt4 export?

Hi Gu00hero,
Most settings are largely the same for most brokers but the if you want the most accurate back-test for your broker, it is recommended you use their settings when possible.
Thanks.
