Hi Elliot,

Tickstory does not integrate with MT4 in this way since we want our data to be compatible with all platforms. Tickstory also is standalone and does not run Windows services in the background.

Regards.

so i purchased it, do i use the forum as support? and i got an error, i use aafx metatrader because when i tried to use the mt4 on my other hard drive(portable version) it would not accept it in the program. aafx metatrader is on the c drive. how do i backtest with 99%? and it uses real tick data?

Hi Elliot,

Thanks for registering. Yes, the forum is the place where you can post your queries.
For the launch error, could you please go through this trouble-shooting check-list in our FAQ:

https://tickstory.com/help/tickstorylit ... ng_quality

If you are wanting to set up MT4 on an external drive, MT4 calls this "Portable mode". Configuring this mode in Tickstory is described in the section "Portable mode" here:

https://tickstory.com/help/tickstorylit ... _tickstory

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Please make sure that you have started MT4 up at least once with the "/portable" option. Tickstory is looking for a specific set of files in the "MT4 Data Folder" and if it doesn't find them, it doesn't recognize the installation folder.

Please also refer to this thread which will hopefully assist if you continue to have issues:

Thanks.

i actually pretty much ran out of space on the other hard drive. it had 90gb free and it is now down to 5gb 88% processing in the export. 2007-2017. is their any way i can reduce the size of the data? or can i export csv files to make it go faster, it takes hours to export to mt4 when i need to go test on another mt4
