I am trying to import S&P500 tick data via Tickstory and use it for my MT4 backtests/optimisations. I have gone through numerous posts where people have similar issues with DAX or any other indexes. I am inserting images of the data import setup from Tickstory and the Journal tab from MT4 after the crash:



Could anyone please assist me?
Thanks in advance,

If you continue to have issues after this, appreciate if you can let us know the details (a screenshot of your broker's MT4 settings compared to your exported settings would also help).
