Hi all,

Is there no way to change symbol names in mt4?. If i want to import historical data diferent to forex pairs i can't find the way to change or create new symbols names, i'm trying to use mt4 to backtest other products, for instance, importing futures data. Is there a way to add or change symbol names?.

Regards.

Thanks qjol,

but i want to change the name completly, for example, if i want to load historical data from FGBL(BUND), i want to create a symbol name FGBL.Daily. I can load the BUND or any data in symbols that already exist, EURUSD or GBPEUR, but it is a mess doing that. Isthere no way to create my symbol names?, i would like to use MT4 to backktest any market data. No way?.

just for backtest ?! disconnect from the internet and do whatever you want, the second you're going online all the data is gone

or like i said before, by using offline charts
