Topic: FSB history data import problems

Recently purchased FSB.

Importing history data on 1 minute charts is not working right for several currency pairs. Only imports around 2000 bars (except for Usdchf).When I look in the MT4 history center, show there are about 65000 bars (3 months). It's like its stuck on the initial import before I went to the charts and scrolled back as far as i could to force loading of bars from the broker. What can the problem be and how do i get it to work right?

Start importing 71 data files.

Re: FSB history data import problems

Hi, probably there is a limit set to 20 000 in data horizon. smile

You will need to search instructions in this forum how to rise to more bars than 50k, this setting file is in somewhere FSB directory. Hope it helps and have a nice day

P.S. I misread 2000 to 20 000 ... so probably this is not the case then. It can be that your broker does not give more bars. I have same issue, so I am forced to use different broker data.

Re: FSB history data import problems

It's set to 300,000, but it imported more than 2K on some:

Importing: USDCHF1.hst
USDCHF M1 - bars: 65343

also i can set in Mt4 history center that i have about 65k on GU 1 minute.

Re: FSB history data import problems

MT has some strange behaviour regarding hist HST files. You have to manually visit the charts with all Symbols and Periods and to force it to load all data by holding the "home" key (only first time).

Than you have to close and reopen MT.

You can try asking in the MQL forums for that, but you have probably a better chance of a good response if you ask your grandma.

Re: FSB history data import problems

Turned out it works when you shut down Metatrader, then do an import. Probably works too if you close down all the charts for pairs you wish to import.

Kind of a problem for me because i have experts running and don't want to shut down mt4, guess could do an second install.
