I'm trying to run back test but it's only going back for two days, even though I have it set to go back almost a year. I'm using tick seting. It finished the test in about 1/2 of a second too.

any ideas?

thanks

F2 (history center) check your data might be the currency the test is going on has not a year data

hmmm, I'm doing the EURUSD, a very common currency pair and I"m sure it would have more than 2 days worth of data.


can you tell me where I go after I hit f2? Nothing in says "history center" so I'm not sure how to research this

thanks

I think your're correct, I believe I've found it under forex, EURUSD 1 Minute.

How do I get more data?

Update post: I think I figured it out . Thanks so much Dvries, you da man
