Topic: Some restrict in Control Panel - Symbols

On Control Panel - Symbols, I can't add or modificate imported via FSB-MT4 Brige symbols with postfix ".m", ".e" etc., used my brocker on some type of accounts. e - ECN, m - micro.
EURUSD.e, EURUSD.m, EURUSD.m1, ...

If it possible, fix it, please. Thx.

Re: Some restrict in Control Panel - Symbols

control panel > symbols

at the bottom enter your symbols with the suffix

My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....

Application prohibits to use as a Symbol of all but six letters. No more then six, and no dots.

I can import that symbols only via FSB MT4 Bridge. But than I can't edit properties of it.

Re: Some restrict in Control Panel - Symbols

in the meantime use the data supplied..... it is good data
I am sure that Popov has seen this in the past and has a fix, but I do not know it
sorry

Re: Some restrict in Control Panel - Symbols

Why do you need symbols with dots in FSB?
Set is with 6 capital letters and change the base file name in order to load files from MT. A data file doesn't contain the symbol name inside.

For example if your MT symbol is .AUDUSD, make an AUDUSD symbol in your Data Source and set base data file name ".AUDUSD".

If you want to manage both kind of symbols - with dots and without, use different Data Sources for them.

Now I simply save CSV data files from MT4 with deleted postixed from file names. "EURUSD.e1.csv" -> "EURUSD1.csv".
Add both those tickers EURUSD and EURUSD.e. In EURUSD.e automatically imported swops and spread from bridge MT4. Then I copypaste it to EURUSD and edit spred and comission. Then I use EURUSD for work.
But this method don't endable auto load hst-data form data directory, because MT4 create filenames with postfixed and that data downloading to symbols with postfixes.

And I tried you advice, if I correctly understand it. I edit symbol EURUSD - base file name - on ControlPanel - Symbols. But unfortunelly, Base filename don't enable dot too.

UPD. Now i edit base filenames of postfixed symbols to without dots. I think now data form csv filed will downloading to all of it.

Re: Some restrict in Control Panel - Symbols

I preferred to make these changes inside EXPORT Data to CSV in MT5

My symbols are USDCAD_i etc. Simple!

For MT4, use attached EA to export to csv. It will remove .m's from filename so FSB can import it automatically (and continously i guess).

Found it somewhere, modified a bit. Have been using it for a long time.
