Hi all, I have about 10 years of 1M data in an HST file. I was thinking maybe when I run a backtest with an EA on the 1H timeframe, it would auto convert. Unfortunately it did not.  Is there a script that will convert my 1M historical data in to 1H? How would I go about doing that? Thanks!

Greetings. I've coded a simple EA that uses CTrade to buy, sell and modify orders. When buying or selling, I'm using SL / TP to close orders. The issue is that although SL / TP are correctly set, they're completely ignored by Strategy Tester. The prices will reach the SL / TP levels many times, but...
