Historical data for Forex is a part of the Online trading FREE course: EA Studio Start-Up. For the whole course, please, click here:
In this video – Historical data for Forex, I will show you how to export the historical data from your broker.
I have one Meta Trader platform that I just installed. It is with the FXCM broker but please don’t take it as a recommendation or any of the brokers that I show in my videos and courses because I’m not connected to any of those.
And of course, I need to choose one to record these videos or my courses. The best thing to do is to look for regulated brokers with low spreads and commissions.
So I just installed it before recording this video because there are a few things that you need to know to export the historical data for Forex from your broker.
And the first thing you need to do when you install it is to remove the limitation of 65,000 bars. And this you can do from tools, and then you go to options. And here on the charts, you have the maximum bars in charts 65,000. So here you can enter 9999 as much as you can and as well here with the maximum bars in history.
And then when you click on OK, if I go again to tools and options, I have a bigger number. And this way I can export more bars from the platform.
Now, keep in mind that if you install the Meta Trader for the first time, you will not have a huge number of bars. And don’t make a mistake to download them from the history center. Because this historical data for Forex is not from your broker, it’s from the MetaQuotes Company which has developed the Meta Trader platform.
So the best thing you can do is to force Meta Trader to give you as maximum bars as possible, I will show you how to do that. And after that when you leave your Meta Trader open, with time, it will collect you more bars. So this way you will know that you have the bars from your broker.
