Thanks.  But i need import csv data, no only export. I do not see the option to import.

 

BTW, MT5 historical data in 1Minute are currently many holes. (Jumps of 1H or 1D in years previous to 2011).   This happens in metaquotes server and some brokers servers.

Years in MT5 

(That with "maxbars-in-charts" 1000000 or unlimited) 

 

And hcs in tester/../history 

 

 

Imagine testing 1Minute with those files.

Import csv is necessary in many situations (cfd's,  etc.). But even more with this history data.

The MT5 Tester has features strikingly good. You have to solve these basic details.

It is not allowed neither to import your own history nor to create your own Symbol.

Rosh, I would like to ask why this will not be allowed.

How else will we load complete data sets for periods not otherwise available for backtesting?

Or if the current data has holes in it...

Or will you still be able to just put in your own history data folders like in MT4?
