I am new to MQL4 program. I want to write an expert advisor program and test it with MT4 historical data, not live data? It would be appreciated if someone could provide me some ideas on how to do this.
to download historical data,
Close all charts
go to tool > option > charts, in the historical bars put 9999999999999999999999999 and also in the other window (max bar chart)
go to where your MT4 is stored, delete evirything in the folder "history".
switch on MT4, go to tool > archives > double click EURSUD 1 Mn, click download, do the same for all the timeframe.
When it is one, close MT4, re open MT4, refresh data.
go to tool > option > charts, put 5000 ( bars ) in the right window
