Hello everyone. This is my first time on this forum. I just installed a currency strength indicator on my MT4 Demo platform. I dragged and dropped it on a chart. I am able to see the names of the currencies at the bottom of the chart but nothing else appears. It is asking me to update my Quote chart. Can someone please advise me on this. I am new to all of this and do not have a clue as to  what i should  do.  Thanks and happy trading.

Did you connect your Metatrader to the broker's server?
Just check the following:

As many people are asking about "How to open account with MT5" and "How to add the broker to MT5" so I want to remind the following links:

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
