Unable to get / use MT4 historic data for ANY instument.

Question

Basically i have been over most of the topics discussing this issue and none have had an answer (As far as i can see).

I am trying to backtest and look at historic data for several FX pairs and Index's on the 1hr and lower TF but can only see around 3 months of data??

I have double clicked on all the timeframes on each pair and index i want to see, but each one says "No new data available". I have downloaded gigs of data on each timeframe and imported them into each one, they never save, they dont update and i still cant see the data.

 

Is there a setting? is there a certain location i need to download IG historic data from? 

 

Can anyone actually solve this ??

 

Thanks.

broker historical data is wrapped in packets, there is only so much for each chart time frame so only the larger time frame stretch back greater distances in time.

The are  3rd party web sites that do more of the smaller time frame data if you google it,  don't know if it's available for mac though.

Yeah I have the 3rd party data but when i upload it the data set doesn't change and I still can't get more than 2 months data. 

 

1hr and daily yes, back around 5 months and a year respectively.

 

Just need to know how to get longer timeframe data for the 5 min upwards

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
    • Meme coins are cryptocurrencies inspired by internet jokes, like Dogecoin. They're inherently risky due to their extreme price swings. While some meme coins remain purely for fun, others are trying to develop actual uses in gaming or finance. These high-risk, high-reward investments often attract "degenerates" (or "degens") who chase quick profits by jumping into unproven projects without much research.   The potential for massive returns with meme coins can't be ignored, however. Dogecoin's 9800% surge in 2021 exemplifies this. A $100 investment could have turned into a life-changing $9800. This experience highlights the potential regret of focusing solely on "safe" investments with lower potential returns.   Taking inspiration from this, some experienced investors are now allocating a small portion of their portfolio to latest meme coins.one of the latest is Miggles listed on Bitget. This strategy allows them to potentially benefit from future bull runs while limiting their overall risk.
