MQL4: Finding OHLC By Symbol Name

PublicImageLtd  

Hello all,

I am writing a script right now. I would like to get access to every symbol and every OHLC candle from that specific symbol. I am getting the symbol name by SymbolName(..., false); right now which is working well. I can see all the currencies I can trade with my basic script. I would like to get the OHLC candles by specifying that same sybmol. How do I do this?


Thanks
