Hi there, tcferreira - Welcome to the forum!

The idea behind Tickstory is to provide traders with a platform to acquire their trading market data, store it and then produce exported data for various trading platforms. For the moment, the system supports the easy download of Dukascopy (http://www.dukascopy.com) data - who offer their high-quality Forex tick data for free.

With this data, Tickstory can produce exported files. At the moment, two types of exports are supported:

- File export (including comma-delimited and tab-delimited file formats)
- Metatrader 4 (MT4) format

File exports can be imported into various trading platforms (such as Amibroker, NinjaTrader and so forth) for further use.

As for the MT4 export - this is a really big step forward in terms of back-testing MT4 Expert Advisors. In case you weren't aware, MT4 does not support tick-accurate back-testing, however it is possible to generate historical data files that allow traders to produce 99% modelling quality in their back-tests. The process to do this to-date however, has been a lengthy multi-step process of downloading the data to generate the MT4 historical data files. With Tickstory, this has been cut-down to a few simple key-clicks.

Future enhancements of this software can include access to other historical data (for NYSE, NASDAQ, ASX, etc) and can be sourced from various free and paid vendors such as Google, Yahoo, Interactive Brokers, e-Signal and others. Not to forget - acquiring real-time data for intra-day traders! Suggestions are welcome to give an idea of what the most popular features are for traders.

Some more detailed documentation on the current features is being written and should be available shortly.

Hope this application is of use to you and looking forward to the feedback!

Regards.
