Hi,

I am trying to download historical tick data in MT4, as when I install it, it only shows the last 3 days of candles. When I go to the history center and try to download the data, I get the following error.

 

 

Any way to get around this?

Thx

Best solution for you would probably be to open up the CRUDE 1M chart then go to metaeditor ..... well it deleted my src arghhh....                                                                                                                                              int filehandle = FileOpen("data.cvs", FILE_WRITE|FILE_CVS);

OnInit(){

getData();

}

void getData(){

int i, total_bars = Bars;

for(i=0; i < total_bars; i++){
FileWrite(filehandle,High[i],Low[i],Open[i],Close[i],Volume[i]);
}
FileClose(filehandle);
}

I think that you need to have your data and load them into Metatrader, otherwise you have just data provided by your broker that usually are just a few data (no more than a couple of months usually).

If you need some data, take a look at:
