MqlTick Tab [] ;
ulong d = (ulong)(D'2019.12.17 10:00:00') ;

void OnStart(){

   CopyTicks(_Symbol,Tab,COPY_TICKS_ALL,d,1) 
   Print(Tab[0].time  );
  
}

I'm trying to get a tick but when i check it by printing tick's date i get  2011.12.19 00:00:08 and if i replace COPY_TICKS_ALL by COPY_TICKS_TRADE i get 2017.02.02 16:30:53
The same problem for any date

datetime -> milliseconds

I twisted the crystal ball and it says: read the messages in the "Experts" tab

Tick history data is provided by your broker. It's not unusual that you don't get more than a few years.
