Excellent service!

Looking forward to download 500k max bar one day or even more especially when I need more M1 data period.

Keep up the good work.

I wish I can have the chance to Rename the data files in EAS or using this service so that the new data don't overwrite the old ones if they are given the same name.

Cheers


you can change the rename the name manually. Open the json file with notepad or something.. look the first line

server":"FS DukasCopy

change the FS DukasCopy to what you want.

But remember if you have big files it could be save a time..

i also have make a post here in forum that we can change the name before download

Stop loss and take profit as percentages

Would like this feature too, instead of setting TP and SL in pips we can set it as %

Load Historical Forex Data in Excel

Loading CSV (Comma Separated Values) files in Excel is straightforward.

- Download the necessary forex symbol files in Excel (CSV) format.

- Open a new Spreadsheet in Excel.

- Click on the Data tab in the navigation menu.

- You can import forex data from Get External Data -> From Text

- Browse to your Download folder and click on the file to be imported. Let's say USDJPY_H1.csv.

- When you select a file, the "Text Import Wizard" appears. It contains three steps. Fortunately, the downloaded forex data files are already in the most preferred format, so click on "Next", "Next", and "Finish".

- A dialogue box named "Import Data" appears. It serves to designate the beginning of the data table. Click "Ok" to import the data

Excel is perfect for review and format the data files. You can easily make price charts or rearrange the data columns if you need it.

Import forex data in Forex Strategy Builder

You need to accomplish three steps in order to import history forex data in FSB Pro - create new Data Source, add the necessary Symbols, and download the data files.

Create a new Data Source in FSB pro. The Data Source holds the settings for the location of the files. See detailed guide here: Data Source.

- Go to the Control Panel -> Data Source page.

- In the section "Add Data source" add the new name: FS DukasCopy. ("FS" stands for Forex Software Ltd.)

- Click on the "Add Data Source" button. It will create new settings and also a new data folder, usually: C:\Program Files\Forex Strategy Builder Pro\User Files\Data\FS DukasCopy.

Customize the Symbols Settings. It is necessary to do it because the data comes with generic parameters for Swap, Spread, and others:

- Navigate to the Control Panel -> Symbol page.

- Change the "Active data source" to FS DukasCopy server. Select the corresponding symbol.

- Change the values to be suitable for your trading account. Do this for all the symbols you are going to import.

- Optionally add new symbols and make the proper settings

Download and copy the history forex files:

- Load the necessary data in Forex Strategy Builder (CSV) format. 100 000 bars is a good start.

- Copy and paste the downloaded forex data files in the new Data Source directory. Now the new data will be available in the Editor.

Import forex data in Expert Advisor Studio

You have to accomplish two steps - to import the data files in EA Studio and to customise the symbol's settings.

Import data files in EA Studio:

- Load the necessary data in the "Expert Advisor Studio (JSON) format". Let's say AUDNZD.

- The files are with a .json extension. For example AUDNZD_H4.json

- Open EA Studio and navigate to the Data -> Data Import page

- Select the download files and drag / drop them over the "Drop files here...' zone. EA Studio will import the files. If you are logged in with your account, EA Studio will also upload the files to the server for later use.

- Now you can visit the Editor and load the new symbol.

Customize the Symbols Settings. It is necessary to do it because the data comes with generic parameters for Swap, Spread, and others:

- Navigate to the Tools -> Symbol Settings page.

- The new data are under the FS DukasCopy server. ("FS" stands for Forex Software Ltd.) Select the corresponding symbol.

- Switch on the "Custom symbol settings" option to be able to customize the settings. Now they become enabled.

- Change the values to be suitable for your trading account.

Import history forex data in MetaTrader 4

MetaTrader 4 imports data in CSV format as follows:

- Load the necessary data in MetaTrader (CSV) format. Let's say GBPUSD. We recommend downloading the full data series - 200000 bars.

- Download all files in your Download folder. If you have previous downloads, you can sort the files by "Date modified".

- Go to MetaTrader 4 and open the History Center from the Tools menu or by using F2.

- Navigate to the particular symbol in the "Symbols:" list - GBPUSD.

- Double click on the period to load the data in the table. We demonstrate that with H1, but you have to do it for all the periods one by one.

- Click the Import button to open the "Import GBPUSD, H1" panel.

- Use the Browse button to select the correct file. GBPUSD_H1.csv in that case. MT will preload and display the new data. If everything is normal, click OK.

- Repeat the previous steps for each period: M1, M5, M15, H1, D1.

Having good data in MetaTrader guarantees better quality of the backtest.
