The mistake I made was taking data from Yahoo Finance which gave me the data backwards from how my table was set...
When I leave my machine on overnight, usually when I come back the current price for the chart I'm on is stuck at a price from hours earlier. The bottom right corner of the MT4 window shows that the client is still connected, but nothing on the chart is updating. Restarting the software fixes the...

Is this a future feature?, without being to add S&R regions it...
I have seen posts from 2004 that indicate that it is possible to get streaming data from Metatrader to Metastock via a free hyperlite service. However I have been told that is no longer possible. Could someone please enlighten me as to whether this can still be done and if so how? Also is the...
