This script allows to create a binary *.hst file, supported by MetaTrader 4. This file can be imported in MetaTrader 4 as historical data or you can open it as offline chart.
It has only one DATA_COUNT input parameter, which specifies data count in bars, starting from current.
Initially, this script was designed for checking of the indicators, written in MQL4 and MQL5, because the same data needed for the compare.
To check the indicator values, follow these steps:
1. Install indicators "Zerolag MACD":
3. If successful, it will print a message with path of the file created, for example:
2011.12.26 20:23:27 SaveHistoryToHST (EURUSD,M1) Path to file: C:\Program Files\MetaTrader 5\MQL5\Files\!EURUSD1.hst
Copy this file to MetaTrader 4 client terminal folder: <MetaTrader 4 Folder>\history\<Server type>\, for example:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MetaTrader 4\history\Alpari-Micro3\
Import file with the history to MetaTrader 4 client terminal as offline, by choosing File -> Open Offlie.
4. Launch the indicator on the MetaTrader 4 offline chart and launch it in MetaTrader 5, you will see that both of them have the same values.
And at last check them visually.
