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.

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.

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
