Hi,


Trying to download history for majors, minors, and some crosses. After a download, MT4 crashes and never recovers. Only a full reinstall with deleting personal data helps. Tried on two different brokers. Any idea how to fix it? Need the data for backtesting.

Thanks in advance!

Hey guys - before I go into the issue, is this the correct place to ask about MT4 issues? Or if not, could someone please tell me the best place...

As a solution, instead of loading using the center, simply pick each pair and in each time frame scroll a couple of pages back.

MT4 Platforms seem to get heavier after downloading years of data for backtest and with time you run into problems. If you do not mind paying some bucks. I would recommend you use this third party application called Tick Data Suite. It will be worth it in the long run.
