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;

    • There is the 'potential' for a breakout in Natural Gas from these price areas. 
    • One of our financial writers have written a piece on smoking vs vaping vs cannabis. Really interesting read. Here's a snip:  Main points:  Big Tobacco turns smoke into vapour Vaping: UK and US take different approaches … with different results Altria’s JUUL investment costs it dearly US vaping crisis highlights importance of a diverse portfolio Can Big Tobacco thrive as cannabis legalisation gains momentum? Altria gets stung for early move into cannabis Can vaping and other smokeless devices become key to the cannabis market?   Find the full article here: Vaping or cannabis: where’s the growth for Big Tobacco?  
    • I see a trend here ... British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman refused to comment on Monday when asked about the hiring of an adviser who has discussed the benefits of forced contraception and said data showed the U.S. black population had lower IQ than white people. https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-politics-adviser/johnsons-office-silent-as-rivals-call-for-adviser-to-be-sacked-idUKKBN20B1NI
