2) Open Tool>History Center (or Press F2)
3) Scroll to The Pair for which u want the data.
4) Double Clcik the Pair
5) Select the Time Frame of which, you want to download data .
6) Click Download on Left Bottom
7) Wait few seconds
8) Done. Enjoy
Hope that helps
Alpari used to do it..but its download links are off from long.
After metaquotes added the DOWNLOAD data feature to all broker mt4.
This feature is enough to get Good 90% modelling quality
For what you asking, may be following helps :
1)GOTO Tool> Options >Charts
2)PUT 2147483647 in "Max bars in history" bcoz thats what's max a Mt4 Supports
(1 day in the History contains 1440 M1 bars)
3) Uncheck autoscroll
4) Minimize zoom (zoom out) to lowest level.
5) May be Restart Mt4
ok, this method helps me reduce my time to scroll back to see the past but it still takes a long time to scroll 1M chart.
anyone has an EA to auto download historical data in the same way as scrolling back the chart?
