I have recently purchased 1 minute spot forex data for 20 currency pairs going back 15 years but I am having problems importing this data into MetaTrader 4. The data came in a text document format but I have no idea how to format the data in the same order per line as Mt4 has. I have opened it up in Excel, but I cant seem to find out the proper way to have this data displayed so MT4 picks up on it.
All the tutorials of importing/downloading data I have found online seems to walk people through downloading data from the Alpari download centre. If someone can walk me through the process I would be very grateful. I spent a lot of money purchasing the data and the only advice the company is giving me is 'consult help menu of MT4' and 'contact MetaTrader'. It is very frustrating. Obviously I have zero experience with importing historical data so any knowledgeable souls out there who wouldn't mind helping me, I would be very appreciative.Below is how the text document and Excel displays the lines:
Thanks so much for your help. I have figured it out.
The problem now is that since I have so much data, it exceeds Excels max row limit..I have to break things up into smaller files. Sigh. Lessons learned however
