Hi, I hope I do not a double post. I want to write the last weeks prices of a couple symbol into a file. So with price = MarketInfo(symbol1, MODE_BID); I can find out the current price. Thats good. But how can I find out the prices of the last e.g. 5 bars? Note that I cannot use the predfined "Bid"...
