Re: mt5 import data issue

Just a reminder that if you do raise the issue, just say "I have tried to import the following file format and get this result". If you mention third-party software, they sometimes get misdirected in their responses.

Hope that helps.

Re: MT5: Tickstory data vs Broker data on created custom symbol

Hi Tickwaiting, Your custom symbol populated with Tickstory data will use "real ticks" when selected in the Strategy Tester. When you select the custom symbol in the Strategy Tester you will always be using the Tickstory data you imported. To use the broker data, select the appropriate symbol from t...

Re: mt5 import data issue

Hi Tickwaiting, you're stretching our knowledge of MT5 here and I wouldn't want to give you incorrect information. First up, there was no suggestion that it was affecting your test results.

Re: mt5 import data issue

Hi Tickwaiting, Thanks for letting us know how you resolved your issue.

I'm not sure why it's not showing for you but looking on MQL Forums, it seems that other use...

Re: Problem with two csv files on MT5

Hi Theandor, Please open the exported file in a text editor that can handle large files like Notepad++ and make sure that the data looks correct. The 1-minute bar data should look similar to: 20150101,23:00:00,1183.949,1184.229,1183.23,1183.409,38,38,1100 20150101,23:01:00,1183.41,1184.05,1183.409,1...
