Only with offline charts.

OK but does that mean I can backtest on them also?

How can  MT4 tick history files be set up for long term back testing.

You have to build the tickdata on your own, google for tickstory or Birt's EAreview and tickdata mt4 and read their howtos and comments!

If it is your EA that you have programmed, you can use only m1 bars as source for the quotes and calculate every higher bar length yourself.

It's a lot to do but it works.
