Historical data MT4


marauder

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;

    • IG's "Trade of the Week" video (26-Apr) suggested going LONG on GBPCAD. After I'd put on a small position I read your post on CAD strength. I wished I'd seen your post first  I was stopped out within a few days.
    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........
