The data you currently see on your Metatrader 4 charts may not be all of the Forex data that is available. You will have to download it manually to see how much there really is.

When looking at your MT4 charts, sometimes you are only seeing a small part of the available data.

…and that can cause problems.

This doesn't matter so much on lower time frames, but when you are looking at the weekly charts, not having all of the available Forex data can mean that you are missing important support and resistance levels.

Having a complete MT4 historical data download is also important in backtesting, as Metatrader 4 is a decent automated backtesting platform.

So in this post, I will show you how to download all of the available MT4 historical data for each currency pair you trade.

If you prefer the text version, it is available after the video.

To download additional MT4 history data, first go to the Tools menu and select History Center. You can also press F2 to get to this quickly next time.

When the History Center screen comes up, double click on the currency pair that you want to download. If the icon next to the time frame is colored, the prices have been generated for that timeframe.

Even though the prices have been generated for a timeframe, that doesn't necessarily mean that all of the data has been downloaded.

By double-clicking on the time frames with the gray icons, it will take a few seconds to generate the prices for that time frame. The number of records is shown at the top of the screen.

To download the complete history from your broker, highlight the currency pair and click on the Download button. It may take a few minutes to download the data, especially if you have never done it before.

There will be a green status bar at the bottom of the screen to show you the progress of the current download.

Once the data is downloaded you should notice that there are more records in the database. You can see this in the database record count at the top of the screen.

For any time period, you can change any of the data for each candle. First highlight the line you want to change, on the right side of the screen.

Then click on the Edit button to change a candle, Delete to remove and Add to insert your own data.

This is useful for fixing bad data from your broker, which can happen once in awhile. Fixing the data manually will clean up your charts and make your automated backtesting more accurate.

You can also click on the Import button to upload your own data or the Export button will allow you to download a CSV file that you can use in another charting program.

This file can also be used in a spreadsheet program like Microsoft Excel to do custom data analysis. There are still some things that you need to do with Excel.

Once you download all of the currency pair historical data, you may be surprised how far back the data actually goes.

For example, after I downloaded the data for the USDCHF currency pair, I found out that data was available all the way back to the 1970's.

If here is a downside to getting all of this data though, it is that it can take up a fair amount of space on your hard drive. So if you have a small SSD, are running a virtual machine, or you are running out of room on your drive, be selective about which pairs you download data for.
