Topic: 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.

Re: Import forex data in Forex Strategy Builder

Hello Mr. Popov,

I have followed all of the indicated steps above, but yet still having difficulty uploading my custom data. Could you spot anything wrong with my file? http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=005 … 1298354336. Thank you very much!

Kind regards,
Sean.

Re: Import forex data in Forex Strategy Builder

also for me, I find it very difficult to import history data into forexsb.

The problem is also that the csv files which are provided by the forexsb on my PC are with commas instead of points and with "-" instead of "/"  and maybe also other unreadable errors... maybe because here  in Germany the excel is different (for example one thousand is 1,000 not 1.000).

Anyway, is there any more friendly solution to import into forexsb the data history? like into EA Studio?

thanks

Mentosan,

Please post ten lines of your MT CSV file.

I'll check the case and will try to solve it when I start working on the next FSB pro release.

I may also try to make a script that exports a proper file format.
