Is it possible to import an external data file(csv or excel for example) to MT5?
Let's say that I have csv file with data about some symbol and I want to Import it to work with it on the strategy tester, is it possible?
Hello. Yes, it's possible. Use #property tester_file
I mean use external file with historical data instead of broker data(to be not connected to a broker and use external historical prices file insted of broker's data).
Try to make a test on a custom symbol. https://www.mql5.com/en/docs/customsymbols
It's one of the last feature of the terminal.
I tried to do it. I maked a new custom symbol and pressed on the Import bars button and chose my csv file, but somehow it doesn't show me the bars on the main screen.
I mean I click import bars and it just doesn't work, you have an idea why?
I edited the file to be in the format like in here: https://www.metatrader5.com/en/releasenotes/terminal/1459 and still not working.
Im not connected to any broker. Maybe because of that?
That's wierd but I reinstalled the MT5 and now it's working!
Not at all.
I had the same issue, but I changed some columns in the file and was fixed. BUT, after I imported the bars and try to open a chart, it appears nothing.
1 minute.I'm trying to open the same chart in 1 minute also.
