Need backdata for metatrader CFD pairs. I know strategy quant has this for currencies but not for specific stocks like google for example.

Open MT5, create an account (it is 1 minutes to do and it is free if demo), and look at those CFD. If you need some other pairs - select the account with the other brokers.

How to Start with Metatrader 5

Sergey Golubev, 2017.03.28 08:27

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:

Data is related to the broker so some brokers are having good data which can be used for backtesting.

For example, this is my MT5 (I tried many brokers and opened many accounts just to find good data and see the symbols I want to use for example) -

There is a method to download data through Strategy Quant for example.. I can download many years for currencies, but I need to have the data for CFD's.. My broker has the symbols I need but when I try to backtest there isn't enough data to backtest several years back to properly test my EA.. Is there a way to get many years of data for CFD's?  I use M5 timeframe..

Basically what I'm asking is I need to know how-to download data for CFD's to my history for historical testing.

Thanks in advance for your help..

Usually most brokers do not provide M1 data over 3 months in MetaTrader 4, but they provide M1 data over 3 years in MetaTrader 5. So we can use this tool to obtain the M1 data in MetaTrader 5 tester and save the data into .hst file for MetaTrader 4 backtesting. How to use it? Test EA in MetaTrader 5...
