Topic: Free Historical Data for ALL Time Frames
A number of us may be looking for longer historical data to generate robust EA.
I personally use only 1min Time Chart with LTF features to develop my EA.
The FSB default 1 min data has about 3mth of historical data which is insufficient for you to develop EA that can withstand the test of time.
Hence, it is necessary to search for longer historical data without the need to purchase them.
Here is the link whereby you can get a free tool to download your historical data in any time frame you prefer.
