MT 4 customised time frame charts - missing data


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help with how to download the missing data on MT 4 customised time period charts.

 

I have created 6 hour and 12 hour charts for a selection of pairs on the IG MT 4 trading platform based on the 1 minute chart but only a few candles have appeared. It seems to be only using the last few days data. Is there a way of getting the missing data for say the last year or so?

 

I would appreciate any help on this matter.

 

Many thanks

Hi ,  to create a chart, open the chart in the time frame directly below the one you want to make, so to make a 6 hr chart open a 4 hr, then open the bar changer app from the 4 hr chart..

In the diag box the Timeframe for the new 6 hr offline chart is 6 x 60 min so enter 360 and then the 'Shift bar time' from 4hr to 6 hr is plus 120 (min). Click ok.

The new chart should then be in the offline chart list to open.

Remember you need to keep the 4 hour chart open to provide the data feed for the 6 hr chart.

Many thanks for this info, but I am unable to find the -IG Bar Changer -  app. The changer I am using at the moment only works on the 1 Min chart, hence I need to be able to download historical data set with the (£) ie. GBP USD(£). I can find the standard sets ie. GBP USD but they do not seem to be recognised in the IG version of MT 4 which seems to use the (£) suffix to each pair. Any further help you could give would be appreciated.

,  you can find the download for the IG MT4  apps at link below (all 18 in 1 download) and the bar changer is amongst them.

From your download folder just open the the MT4 apps file while MT4 is running and will auto-load, will probably need to close and re-open MT4.

Some will be placed in the 'indicators' list, others are placed in the 'expert advisers' list.
