I would like to ask if there is any chance to use my own historic data in MT5.
Is it true that I must have a broker and try then to get the historic data from him?
You can also use a free Demo account from metaquotes. Anyway, every broker will have some little differences in their datas (it's stupid but it's like that)..
As soon as you're connected to an account (broker or metaquotes) and you start strategy tester, the software will download historical data for the targetted period in your strategy and will use the data from the account you're connected to.
I hope it helped.
No, it is not possible,Only indirectly.
look here :

Can you explain to me what can happen in this case? (It will maybe help me temporary fixing a issue that i have).
The errors below are persisting no matter how many times I re-download the data from MetaQuotes. And of-course the problem is we cannot use custom price data in strategy tester simulations of EAs.
