Historical price data needed


mtbtrader

Question

Hi. Can anyone tell me how to pull in more price data than currently shows on the charts on either MT4 or IG Trading platform? For example, if I want 1hr price data on USD basket I can only go back as far as April 2019 on the IG online charts. Same with 15min or 4hr. Surely I can scroll back somehow as far back as I want? I typically need to go back 20yrs or so. With MT4, I can do this on some instruments like EURUSD by downloading through the history centre, but taking the USD index as an example again, the furthest I can go download back is Jan 2019. If anyone can help that would be super appreciated.

I seem to remember there was a third party pay for API could download some extra IG chart data, would need to search the forum.

The video below shows how to get metaquotes data 20 yrs.

Thanks for that. If you happen upon more info on the third party option can you please pass the info on. I've had a look myself but haven't been able to find much. Many thanks.

I will though the API only delivers for the web based platform format not mt4.

    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
