hi i hope someone can help if they have had the same issue as me.
for some reason with some charts the candle stick formation wont work and instead shows the bar chart formation. the line chart and bar chart both work fine but i would work off the candle stick formation.
has anyone ever experienced this? i have deleted the software mt4 and downloaded it again but that doesnt help
Carl Schreiber: Have you tried F8 in the terminal, tab Common and select Candlesticks?BTW: mt4 questions should go in its thread and the bottom of this page.
many thanks Carl that worked. i am new to this forum so just hit new topic not knowing which thread it would appear on
if you read my original comment i do mention it shows a bar chart instead of the candle stick formation therefore its not meaningless as i have provided some clarity to my problem. i dont ask for mind readers only people who can read the text and have the knowledge to help. isnt this what forums are for ? not undermining comments
Please don't be agressive with people trying to help you.
No it's not obvious and personally I still have some doubts. Could you post a screenshot ?
i got aggresive in response to how whroeder1 replied. whereas Carls reply was to the point gave advice and didnt imply i was an idiot.
its working atm if it doesnt work tomorrow i will post a screenshot. when i say some charts i mean for example usdjpy the candle formation wont show when it is selected and instead shows the bar formation, but then the candle formation would work for gbpusd. itll happen from when i open the software without any EA/indicators on it
