Hi guys,

Need some help please. I would like to back test my trading system manually on a demo MT4 account, however I cannot get the tick data to be aligned across all time frames.

For example, D1 data starts at 1/10/99 whilst M15 starts at 11/05/07 and M5 starts at 17/02/09. I would like all data to start from 1/10/99.

I have tried downloading new M1 data via History Center and applying the period_converter script as 5, 15 and 1440 but it doesn't seem to respond?

Please help! Thanks guys

Period_converter is a bit "uncommunicative" to say the least.

The best way to monitor its progress is to check the output file properties in the operating system and wait until the size attribute is completed.
