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.

    • Nadim Zahawi at the Downing Street press conference yesterday said comments about vaccine dangers was disinformation. He was presumably referring to the govt MHRA listing of the adverse reactions to these 100% safe vaccines which is fast approaching 1million adverse reactions and 15 hundred deaths. Or perhaps he was referring to the US's CDC who yesterday reported that there is a clear link between the 100% safe vaccines and cases of Myocarditis and Pericarditis but this was fine because if you survived the condition generally cleared up after a week or two. Myocarditis and Pericarditis Following mRNA COVID-19 Vaccination | CDC   Meanwhile Media Minister (what that?) John Whittingdale shows his exasperation of the plebs not understanding that the rules don't apply to  I_M_P_O_R_T_A_N_T  people, how many examples do some people need waved in their faces before this gets through their thick skulls? 🤦‍♀️     Meanwhile 2, Boris is full steam ahead with his new bill to get big tech to shut down and deplatform dissenters quicker than they already do. If there's one thin Boris has learnt from the Chinese is that any doctors and research scientist producing evidence that counter govt propaganda need to be silenced pronto and with extreme prejudice.   .    
    • Bitcoin exchanges are open 24/7 but do shut down periodically for platform maintenance and updates. Brokers do the same but usually on a weekly basis, IG shuts down a couple of hours after the US Friday market close and their crypto offering usually restarts about 4 hours later.
    • Hi THT, I assume you have this vertical time grid plotted out in advance and you're waiting to see if the market obeys it.  Is this time cycle purely derived from observation?  So following the Covid crash you could observe 3 lows and plot 3 vertical lines and see that theres roughly an equal distance between them. You could then plot out more further in time with the same interval. That seems very simplistic but perhaps that is not how you come about it. When I say it looks simplistic I realise there is a lot more to a strategy than this observation to make it work.
