Topic: Did not have the same range of data in mt4 as in eastudio

What could it be. I download data from data service. Also download data for mt4 and import it correctly.

Now when i want to backtest e.g from 1.1.2007 to 22.1.2020 i get this in my journal on mt4.

2020.01.31    
2020.01.31 21:15:59.395    Tester: template 'M:\MT4Back\templates\tester.tpl' applied
2020.01.31 21:15:59.397    TestGenerator: file "M:\MT4Back\tester\history\EURUSD60_0.fxt" is read-only
2020.01.31 21:15:59.397    TestGenerator: symbol EURUSD period 60 model 0 from [b]2017.01.01 to 2020.01.05[/b]
2020.01.31 21:15:59.400    2007.01.08 00:00:00  Portfolio Expert EURUSD H1 inputs: Entry_Amount=1; Base_Magic_Number=100; 
2020.01.31 21:15:59.442    2017.01.02 00:00:00  Portfolio Expert EURUSD H1 EURUSD,H1: array out of range in 'Portfolio Expert EURUSD H1.mq4' (578,15)
2020.01.31 21:15:59.442    2017.01.02 00:00:00  Testing pass stopped due to a critical error in the EA
2020.01.31 21:15:59.452    EURUSD,H1: 115 tick events (18727 bars, 77111641 bar states) processed in 0:00:00.047 (total time 0:00:00.047)

Here is the ea.

Also this problem i have had with

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//|                                                                  |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
double Close(int bar)
  {
   return Close[bar];
  }

So when i use backtest date from 1.1.2017 - 5.1.2020 it is working.

But why i have a json file with data from 2007 and in mt4 i have data from 2017??

In my mt4 history center there are data from 2007..

Ok with open prices it is working but why not with every tick in the backtest settings?

Re: Did not have the same range of data in mt4 as in eastudio

Try to load the data in the MT chart with holding the Home key. Try that for all periods.

Re: Did not have the same range of data in mt4 as in eastudio

i think it is cause mt4 is making ticks with lower timeframe...

and we can only download 200.000 bars...

maybe can you make it up for mt4 format to download more bars<?

Re: Did not have the same range of data in mt4 as in eastudio

As it is a free service it has to work without excessive running costs. I'll see how it will work with 30 symbols, and if it is possible, I'll increase the number of bars. 

My goal is to bring these data to FSB Pro and EA Studio.
