If you're referring to acquiring data from these platforms, we're investigating other sources for quality data. Ideally we would like to create a data import routine for MT4 which should cover all supporting brokers such as ThinkForex.

Regards.


In that case please include FXCM. I have the Historical Data Downloader from FXCM. It allows downloading Tick data from the FXCM live feed. It would be great to finally be able the back test on tick data of my own broker and than to compare the BT with the real results of the same day.

Hi Pipperoni,

This is on the list to investigate further. If others also find this useful and vote up, then this would make things more compelling.

Regards.

Please add new export data format types for the Sierra Chart platform, both for Intraday and Historical independantly.

Sierra Chart, although not as popular, is a better trading platform than NinjaTrader 8 by far (and I have used them both for a long time)

Thanks for listening

Hi Napoleon,

Thanks for the suggestion. We'll look to a pre-defined format for SierraCharts. Perhaps you could confirm if these custom settings do the trick:

Daily data (select "Daily" in the Export timeframe):
Header:
Code: Select all
Date, Open, High, Low, Close, Volume, OpenInterest

Data format:
Code: Select all
{BarBeginTime:yyyy/MM/dd},{Open},{High},{Low},{Close},{Volume},0


Tick data (select "1-minute" in the Export timeframe - it appears that 1-minute is the most granular intraday data it handles):
Header:
Code: Select all
Date, Time, Open, High, Low, Close, Volume

Data format:
Code: Select all
{BarBeginTime:yyyyMMdd},{BarBeginTime:HH:mm},{Open},{High},{Low},{Close},{Volume}


Hope this helps.

Thanks for the promised support.

Should have given you this link instead. Sorry

http://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?pa ... ml#Formats

Yes, tick data is indeed supported by SC, not only 1 minute. Please head over to the Bid/Ask/BidVolume/AskVolume format example. Header is either optional or required depending on the format chosen. Better include one in all cases

Thank you !!!
