Press F2 and select your symbol ... and download it.

if you have an error just press download again.

Thanks, Big Bro!!! :))

Although I don't think you'll get 10yrs worth, this is usually just what the broker makes available which is often a running 3 months

For more you'll need to source the data yourself and load it into the History Center

Dukascopy/Tickstory provide historical data and you may need to play around with formatting

dukascopy data can't help

exp: if you use FBS terminal so you must just use FBS historical

because dukascopy have not FBS quality then your backtest is worst

{dukascopy have clear quaLITY}
