I was wondering if there was a way to watch past candlesticks form. Is there an indicator or way i can do this?   I would like to watch them form instead of just popping up to the current live candle. This would help me a great deal. Especially if I was able to watch them form with indicators that I add onto them.

You can do it in strategy tester, but it will not be exactly as they formed.

It is because the past candlesticks form based on tick data history. What you got from broker, it will display based on that.

Unless you use real tick data with the Strategy Tester.
