Is it possible to import the historical data from csv file for the period before 1970.01.01?
It seems that MT4 doesn't accept the data input for year 1969 backward.
Has anyone tried this before?
I see. It looks like there's no other choice.
I have the same problem :-(
I can't understand the solution with the "timeshift" because then my actual data are lying in the future. Is this possible?
Is there meanwhile another solution available? Or can I import it as Offlinechart?
Bear in mind the markets have changed dramatically since 1970. So backtests around this time will give you wrong results!
It was the time when even companies only got EoD-data from the USA and Forex didn't even exist!
Thanks, I know this and I know that metatrader is working with TIME starts at 1970, so backtesting wouldn't be working for old data.
I only want to draw my old data into the chart, only to see it.
In your earlier post, you didn't type 1970, you typed 1070
Yes, this it a point I thought about it.
I have had my first data from 1896 so I have to put an offset of 74 years. Somewhere I read that the "future data" couldn't be shown longer than 2040 - so it isn't possible to show my actual data.
