Hello fellow traders,

I am wondering if its possible to draw candles bar by bar for back testing in MT4. I have played around with Forex Tester 2 and the Ninja Trader version but I would like to do this in MT4 if it's possible.

 

Thanks.

Hi Daniel

If you're talking about replaying historic data tick by tick / bar by bar and manually placing trades then you'll need a simulator for MT4. <link removed by moderator>

If you want to just replay bar by bar then just drag your chart back to a particular start point and use F12 to advance bar by bar.

If that's not what you mean, could you please elaborate?

Cheers

EDIT: No idea why the link to the simulator was removed as it's a free tool??? If you're interested, send me a message and I'll send you the link.

Free tool or not doesn't matter. It's advertising for a commercial company. People interested can contact you, there is no problem.
