Hi,


I am trying to backtest but I am unable to download sufficient data into MT4.  Oanda says you are the owner of the data.  I am looking to backtest 2016 data for the following pairs.


EURCHF

AUDCHF

CADCHF

USDCHF

EURUSD

AUDUSD

NZDUSD

NZDCHF

How can I get more historical data into MT4?



Thank you,


Ryan

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

Here you can find a free script that downloads all the charts of AUD/CAD/CHF/EUR/GBP/JPY/NZD/USD instruments (for all the time frames).

Very useful after a fresh install of MT4.

EDIT >> OK, to the overanxious moderator: that script is FREE.

I do not see a link for edit or info as to where I find it.

Attach the file, or the code, without the hyper link.

OK, here is the script itself, attached.

This fast script loads at least 2000 bars (or less,  if the broker has no enough) for AUD/CAD/CHF/EUR/GBP/JPY/NZD/USD instruments (for all the time frames).

Recommended, if you just made a fresh MT4 install and there are no enough data.

(If some charts failed, increase the pause millisec and run it again.)
