I download my data from forex tester and data manager through fxcm.

When I download from data manager through fxcm and import into ST, I get an outrageous number of mismatched errors.

Question is, is there a way to fix this price difference in timeframes, or is the data from fxcm just toilet?

After searching through some threads (a lot of which never hit any topics about HOW to fix the problem) I came across this....

How to use "period_converter" script that's within MT4 to potentially fix mismatch chart error - step by step: http://thetrademachine.com/blog/2009/09/29/set-up-metatrader-history-data-get-90-backtesting-quality/


So, when anyone searches in the future "data mismatch error", they'll hopefully find this nice and punchy thread to point them in the right direction. :)
