Hi all,

 English is not my native language, but i try to explain what i want to say ...

 I do strategy test on M15 and i want to get price on other timeframe. ex: H4, D1....

 iclose, iopen, ihigh and ilow are always 0 on other timeframe...Why?

 there is a problem during 2007~2014 only, but it will become normal after 2015 (i can get close, open high and low)

 It's so tricky...

Sorry for my poor english :(

Any suggestion will be appreciated :)

There are no mind reader here.
  1. Do you have history for the other timeframes? Do you Print the _LastError so you can find out?
  2. Post your broken code. Likely You are mixing apples and oranges

Thanks your reply

Do you have history for the other timeframes?  no ,  but i consider that MT4 can model on different timeframe of a symbol tested...

There's my code, I't just print data...

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| expert start function                                            |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
int start()
  {
//----
  
   int M15NewBars = 0;

   
   M15NewBars = M15Chart.isNewBar();
   if (M15NewBars) {
   Print("My time frame   "," Open=",Open[1],"  High=",High[1],"   Low=",Low[1],"  Close=",Close[1],"  Volume=",Volume[1],"  Bid=",Bid);
   Print("30 minute frame "," Open=",iOpen(NULL,PERIOD_M30,1),"  High=",iHigh(NULL,PERIOD_M30,1),"   Low=",iLow(NULL,PERIOD_M30,1),"  Close=",iClose(NULL,PERIOD_M30,1),"  Volume=",iVolume(NULL,PERIOD_M30,1),"  Bid=",Bid);
   Print("1 hour frame    "," Open=",iOpen(NULL,PERIOD_H1,1),"  High=",iHigh(NULL,PERIOD_H1,1),"   Low=",iLow(NULL,PERIOD_H1,1),"  Close=",iClose(NULL,PERIOD_H1,1),"  Volume=",iVolume(NULL,PERIOD_H1,1),"  Bid=",Bid);
   Print("4 hour frame    "," Open=",iOpen(NULL,PERIOD_H4,1),"  High=",iHigh(NULL,PERIOD_H4,1),"   Low=",iLow(NULL,PERIOD_H4,1),"  Close=",iClose(NULL,PERIOD_H4,1),"  Volume=",iVolume(NULL,PERIOD_H4,1),"  Bid=",Bid);

   counter++;
   }
//----
   return(0);
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

shuenmeau: Do you have history for the other timeframes?  no  but i consider that MT4 can model on different timeframe of a symbol tested...
Then how do you expect MT4 to give them to you? Timeframes below your M15 have been modeled in the tester, not the higher ones.

um....Because I found the article https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/1490 

It's mentioned:

The tester in MetaTrader 4 allows seeing not only the tested timeframe, but also other - higher and lower - timeframes. Thus, if we test an Expert Advisor on the timeframe EURUSD M15, we can see the values of the indicators for EURUSD H1 or EURUSD M5.

Actually, It's all good before... I don't know why it's not work suddenly... And you can see that EA can get close price in 2016 .

I also download H1 and H4 history, it seems not to be working ...
