though we can do strategy testing by date on MT, how can we test by date and time as well.

Say I want to test my strategy from 14 July 08:00 to 20 July 20:00.

Actually my indicator works on 4 hrs chart, and so I want to test the strategy accordingly.

How's about using the history center to export the appropriate data set (just to have a saved copy for future use).

Then back in the history centre delete the records you don't need, leaving the date/time combinations you require.

I don't know how to do that all at first.

Actually my strategy works on 15 mins, but I decide long or short directions from 4 Hrs charts.

can you give me a simple example on how to do such kind of exports and filtering???
