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.

    • Asian shares rose to a one-month high on Wednesday, led by a rally in tech stocks like Nvidia which surpassed Microsoft to become the world's most valuable company. The dollar was steady as soft US retail sales data reinforced expectations of the Federal Reserve cutting interest rates later this year. Markets are pricing in around 48 basis points of rate cuts by the Fed in 2024. Trading is expected to be muted due to the US markets being closed for the Juneteenth holiday on Wednesday. Oil prices were steady, with Brent crude around $85 per barrel and WTI crude near $81.5 per barrel. UK inflation slowed to 2% year-on-year in May, from 2.3%, and held at 0.3% month-on-month. Core CPI slowed to 3.5% YoY from 3.9%.
