Bitcoin historic data MT4

Question

Hi    Great that Bitcoin is now on MT4 but is there anyway to increase the amount of historic data? Currently only has data from Sep 5th onward.

Hi  - Glad that you're liking the addition of cryptocurrencies to our MT4 offering. Over the next week or so I hope to have a shorter feature on MT4 which we will host on the Community, along with a chance to ask our 'head of integrated trading solutions' and IG MT4 specialist any question you may have. 

 

Currently the back data on MT4 is a little limited, however we should have more data added soon. Originally we had this planned for launch a couple of weeks back, however it has proved to be a little more complicated than expected. We should be adding data this week and our head of integrated trading platforms has confirmed it should go pretty far back. 

 

I'll keep an eye out and let you know if I spot anything. We're also planning on a specific community feature discussing MT4 which you maybe interested in. I'll let you know when this goes up.

Hi  & 

 

I checked with our MT4 Technical team and unfortunately it is not as simple as importing our IG chart data into MT4. Due to the complexity of the task it will not happen in the near future.

 

Thanks

Anton

Hi   Thanks for the follow up, disappointing though. Hope it won't be the same story for other new instruments in the pipe line such as Bund and dollar basket.

    • Hey @dmedin I've spoken to the marketing team about this. Although we have the footnote regarding the 6 hour time off, I do see where you're coming from so I will pass on the information. Luckily they sit very close to me!  Thanks for leaving your feedback
    • Bitcoin continues to follow my road map.  The 8800 level remains a vital resistance zone but right now a more important zone of support is coming up.  This is an area I highlighted previously as a make or break as I feel a break lower through this area (circa 7200, the Fib 62% level, or between 7000-7400) would suggest a full breakdown in the market and possibly signaling the end is nigh. The fundamentals could be construed as supporting this scenario if you believe the price action is more indicative of a highly speculative mania.  Certainly the % or IG traders Long suggests that everyone is eager for another massive rally, despite the technicals...  In order for crypto to supplant either Gold as a store of value or Fiat currency as a means of barter the speculation has to stop and cryptos like Bitcoin (well in fact for the ultimate vision to become reality there can be only one really) have to be essentially valueless (in the sense that it cannot be valued in USD).  Crypto has to resolve the split personality issue as well.  Is it a challenge to Gold or a challenge to Fiat?  Can it credibly be both?  If we get a major financial system crash in the near term I don't think any of the Cryptos will be sufficiently established to be either.  So that leaves speculation for now and such markets are not much different to other speculative financial markets so for now I am leaning towards a bounce off the bottom of the consolidation Triangle (maybe around the Fib 62%) and a final rally. If that occurs then the projection for a rally end is about 18000, which is lower than the previous ATH as around the Fib 88.6% level.  However that unclosed gap still lurks around 6000...  Interestingly the 8800 level is setting up to align with a break of the upper Triangle line.  If we do see a bounce then the next big make or break will be a test of that resistance zone and a breakout of that to the upside should herald a big rally phase.
