importing tick data in MT5

Arnaud Hoffstetter  


I have imported ticks data into my MT5 PLateform

But do I also Have to import data in 1 minute time frame if I want to use my EA in 1 minute or does MT5 compile the ticks data so that the 1 minute is also computed ?

If I have to import one minute data how can we do this because exporting tick data from tick data manager is only in tick not in minutes?

And finally for Times frame above one minute does MT5 compound with ticck or 1 minute data?

Thank you very much for your help

You need to create M1 bars from ticks. On future release M1 bars will be created automatically (it's already available in beta build).

Other timeframes are created automatically from M1 bars.
