Hello,


I found a MetaTrader4 error on the 1M time scale.

This is not an error in any custom code as it is there even with no indicators or experts active.

It misses 6 days on Jan 15, 2015

Jumps directly from Jan 12 to Jan 19

This is MT4 feature, that it allows inconsistent chart data. It happens when you do not open that particular timeframe for a period longer than the history length of the broker.

You may fix it by tossing away candles beyond the current active history scope in the history centre, or by scratching the entire hst file for that timeframe (when MT4 Terminal is down).

  1. Brokers usually only supply 32k-64k bars 23-45 days of M1. Right click -> refresh to get all your broker has to offer.
  2. Don't attach a file, insert the image
