Historical data MT4

Question

Hi, is it possible to download or otherwise import historical FX data from IG in to MT4? When I log in to my MT4 account the historical download seems to max out at 2/3 months. You can download additional data but it sources it from MetaQuotes and not IG. 

Thanks

Hi, not that I've seen, the historical data from IG comes as 'packets' so there is only so much 5 minute chart history data and only so much monthly chart history data and so the 5 min chart data only goes back x number of weeks and the monthly chart data only goes back only x number of years.

You can download some extra data from the History Center from the mt4 Tools tab but that is metaquotes data not IG's.

Other sources of historical data see hee;

    • I cannot see that the global economy will have a fast recovery. I can only see a depression looming unless a vaccine is quickly developed. This is the first time in a long time that the US has been directly affected by a major negative event (9/11 was localised). With the US slowing down, there is no other economy that will be able to create the demand required to get us a fast recovery. China's domestic demand is not large enough and Chinese personal debt was going through the roof even before the virus pandemic. How will the world and the global economy be once this pandemic subsides? I think a very changed society and traditional retail will be one the worst sufferers. Also with all this money printing, is there a risk of hyperinflation in the long term? Well, gonna buy a couple of KGs of gold just as insurance and not for investment per se. Also think property prices will come under the cosh so sitting on cash will enable you to buy distressed properties as getting loans will be hard for many. I am reevaluating my log term investment strategy to take into account the changing environment.
    • Yes...lots of people reacting in strange ways right now......Keep smiling.... How long will it all last? I know it sounds boring....but forget the noise (harder said then done) and watch the charts...the trend is your only friend.... That said....down for april.....sell in may and come back in june!!
