Topic: Difficulties saving MT4 historical data to Data Directory
Hi Popov, or anyone else that might be able to help,
I'm going though the FSB pro video tutorials, and following along, setting up FSB with mT4 etc, and have come to a stumbling block in Part 6 - Importing Historical Data From MetaTrader | Create & Trade Expert Advisors.
In MT4, I have loaded 100,000 bars of data in the M1 chart, and loaded as much data into all the higher TFs up to W1, and am now trying to save the data.
I go to "File" > " Save as" and get this screen:
The "File Name" isn't prepopulated with .csv as you can see...
Next, I go to FSB and go to "Data Sources" > "Open Data Directory" ... making sure my "FXCM Demo" profile is selected, and copy the file path (image below):
I then paste the file path into the MT4 "Save as" window, and click "Save".
But nothing gets saved into my FXCM Demo Data Directory... What am I doing wrong?
Is it because it a demo account? And it's a Sunday?
Thanks in advance for any pointers!
