I have an EA which I can successfully run on various timeframes on the DAX on MT4.

However - the 10 minute chart is not one of the standard MT4 charts. I have successfully downloaded an offline 10 minute MT4 chart. I can see this holds data for over the last year - which is sufficient for my initial test.

I have my EA on the chart -everything is setup. SO all good.

The only thing is - when i set up the variables to run the strategy backtest on MT4, on the timeframe dropdown menu I do not see the 10 minute option there. I still only see the default MT4 intervals (1m, 5m, 15min etc)

Does anyone know what final step i need to do to test my strategy on the 10 minute chart? It has to be possible as i can see my 10 minute chart with the historic data on it.
