Hi Paolo,

Do you have a format specification that Multicharts accepts?

Thanks.

Hi,
it is very simple but in the mt4 seems very complex :-( I use Oanda data feed that it is very good for multicharts and I can export 1 minute csv file with a very simple structure:

"Date","Time","Open","High","Low","Close","TotalVolume"
03/01/2010,23:01:00,149.810,149.815,149.778,149.778,0
03/01/2010,23:02:00,149.775,149.852,149.764,149.821,0
03/01/2010,23:03:00,149.817,149.833,149.785,149.799,0
03/01/2010,23:04:00,149.797,149.827,149.792,149.822,0
03/01/2010,23:05:00,149.818,149.827,149.811,149.820,0
03/01/2010,23:06:00,149.824,149.844,149.820,149.844,0
03/01/2010,23:07:00,149.852,149.904,149.852,149.900,0
03/01/2010,23:08:00,149.896,149.947,149.893,149.945,0
03/01/2010,23:09:00,149.951,149.961,149.942,149.947,0

I have to build for Mt4 the proper volume (oanda data feed put it to 0) and all the other TF in order to have perfectly aligned Multicharts & MT4. In this moment I'm using your application than I export 1 minute data from mt4 and I import it in the MT4. Multicharts & MT4 with your data are perfectly aligned but for my studies I use Oanda and I'm not able to crete .hst and .xt files.
Thanks for your help.

Hi Paolo,

You can "Export to file" using the following file format that matches Oanda:

Header format:
Code: Select all
""Date"",""Time"",""Open"",""High"",""Low"",""Close"",""TotalVolume""


File Format:
Code: Select all
{BarBeginTime:dd/MM/yyyy},{BarBeginTime:HH:mm:ss},{Open},{High},{Low},{Close},0


Hope this helps.

Hi,
thanks for your reply but it is what I do today, I mean your software is able to build .hst and .xt files for mt4 and a csv file for multicharts starting from your database (tick values).
What I'm asking, obviously I have to pay you, is to start from files that I can export from multicharts (oanda data feed) and, if it possible for you, build the .hst and .xt files for mt4. It is not relevant for me that the precision is not good because I don't have tick values from oanda data feed.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Paolo,

As I understand, you wish to export data from Multicharts (in CSV format) and then convert/import this into Metatrader. This feature isn't currently available in Tickstory however it is on our todo list.

Hope this helps.

Yes it is my request. Is it something that you can evaluate to do as a stand alone service if I provide the 6 files from multicharts?
Thanks in advance
