I have tick historical data, each ~15 GB, which is alot, and i wanted to import them into MT4,but for some reason it doesnt want to import it.

The format of the tick database is:

Timestamp,Bid price,Ask price,Bid volume,Ask volume
20120112 01:02:10:100,1.24233,1.24271,1.1,1.2
20120213 02:04:10:332,1.24243,1.24262,1.5,1.3

I dont know if MT4 strategy tester supports this, if not them please tell me what format does the MT4 recognize.

Also if i missed something please tell me why it could not work?

I cannot get the strategy tester to work at all in my MT4 environment. I tried two different providers.  I would like to find an online ( or offline ) solution t this problem.

I recommend you to read what is written about the use of tickdata and mt4 by Birt and Tickstory Lite (google mt4 Tick data Birt's Earview Tickstory lite)
