Hello,


since Tickstory does not work with Build 950, how can I get good historical data for EURUSD M1 in order to use the strategy tester?


Let's say one year, 2015.


Thx, FF

Hi again FF

Personally, I'd never use any data except that from a real account from the broker you plan to use your EA on. If that's only 6 months instead of a year, so be it. And as has been recently discussed on these forums, you're better off to consider the MT backtester as a logic/code tester rather than a "strategy tester"

Thx Stuart,


do you download respective data via the "history centre"?


Thx

Welcome FF. No, I don't personally use the history center centre either, that's data from the MQ servers

Sorry for the stupid question...


but how would I be able to import good historical data into the strategy tester?


When I try to pick a date range, the journal says that there is no respective data...


I would be happy with the last 6 months...
