Dear all, 

I'm quite new on metatrader but I'm facing a very inconvenient situation on a demo account: the EURUSD rate appears to be at ridiculous levels like 144, or 145... Please see below on the picture :

MT4 bug

Has anybody got an idea of why this happens? I would greatly appreciate any help on this :)


Thanks,

Edouard

This is not a bug in Metatrader. This is basicly related to the data (broker's data feed/quotes), so you can contactwith the broker about it.


And it is some information about how to prepare the data in MT4 for trading/backtesting:

MT4 History data generation

Hi peperibal:

It is not a fully related to your questions but it is about what I am doing when I want to backtest/check/trade using some pair for example:

1. I open MT4.

2. Open USDJPY H1 chart (if I want to do something with this pair).

3. Go to Tools - History Center, find this pair and double mouse click on every pair's timeframe so

before double-mouse click on every timeframe there:


after:


So, by this action - I downloaded the history for this pair to MT4.

4. Now I want to transfer this history to the chart (to trade, for backtesting, and so on).

So, I change timeframe for USDJPY chart to M1, right mouse click on any space of the chart and choose 'Refresh', and all history is loaded to the chart - and I can see it from the Journal about how many bars were loaded from my MT4 History Center to this chart:


Same with M5 timeframe (Refresh), same with M15 and so on up to MN.

----

After that only I will backtesting/trading or whatsoever anything with this pair (USDJPY in our example).

Just my experience

By the way, if you use MT5 so the data is automatically loaded (you do not need to do anything in case of MT5 for example).

You can solve it on the way I described about (see the images), or contact with your broker (because the data feed/quotes are related to the brokers).

  1. You don't?
  2. If you don't have any history, here's how you can get all available from your broker.
