Traders quite often need to access the archive of quotes for a particular instrument over a certain period of time. Using archived quotes allows traders to test mechanical/automated trading systems (“Expert Advisors”) based on historical data, thus helping them optimize their trading strategies.

In this section you can download the quote archive that you need:

  • Indicate the desired trading instrument, time frame, and range of dates for which you would like to receive the history of quotes;
  • Click the “Obtain CSV” button and wait for the CSV file with the quote archive to be compiled (this may take some time);
  • Import the file to the MetaTrader 4 terminal by following the instructions below.
