MetaTrader Static provider

Modified on 2011/09/01 13:13 by Eugene — Categorized as: Providers

This is a static provider that provides access to historical data stored in MetaTrader 4 files (HST format). One can download several years worth of currency, CFD and indices data (from 1-minute to monthly) for free from a MT-compatible dealer.

Once you have installed MetaTrader and downloaded some historical data, setting the provider up is straightforward:

  1. Point to a directory containing MetaTrader historical database (HST files, usually ..\MetaTrader\history) and select any HST file.
  2. Select a bar scale from the drop down menu. The wizard will scan the folder for the HST files in selected bar scale so you could finish the DataSet creation.
