Open a chart on each symbol and set timeframe to monthly.

InMT5, the data will be downloaded automatically when back testing started.

If this is for MT4, please ask your question in MQL4 forum

You are right. However you can also read that :

Before testing a multi-currency strategy, it is recommended to download all the necessary historical data to the client terminal. This will help to avoid delays in testing/optimization associated with download of the required data. You can download history, for example, by opening the appropriate charts and scrolling them to the history beginning. An example of forced loading of history into the terminal is available in the Organizing Access to Data section of the MQL5 Reference.
