Weekend when forex is closed is a good time to explore other trading markets like bitcoin market. But i always had problems with good BTC/USD history to test anything in reasonable way!

 

History in MT4 is a pain in the... And when it comes to BTC-E btc/usd history it is even worse (falsified history in few places - like showing drop to 300 usd while the drop was to 100usd)

So i decided to create a free program to convert these history files:

http://api.bitcoincharts.com/v1/csv/ 

to 1M,5M,15M,30M,1H,4H CSV history center file. At least now i can test everything with 1M opening prices accuracy. There was some program to convert these history to MT4, but rarely anyone got it to work.

To anyone that trades bitcoins in MT4 - please test this program and report how is it doing! (the volume may be incorrect unfortunately)

I added gap filling, so if no transactions were made during lets say 5 minutes it copies previous close price as OHLC (flat bar).

 

If you have any additional ideas I will be grateful!

If betatests are successful I will include converted CSV files in one of following posts.

Let me know what you think (if you trade or want to trade bitcoins) we can improve it together.

angevoyageur:

market for MT4 is on MT5.com, so it is a bit confusing. The same with login/password put in MT4 from MQL5.com community site and separate passwords for MQL4 and MQL5 sites.  Sorry for mixing them up.
