Topic: symbol settings for indices or commodities using FS historical data?

hi all,
I have a simple question. I'm using the historical data service Popov provided (hats off!) efficiently for currencies and fx, but when it comes to things like indices, gold, oil etc, I can not run efficient analysis using the historical data. I can not determine the spread, the lot size and point value properly.
to give an example, let's say I'd like to build a robot using the EA Studio for DAX/Ger30 indices, the current spread in my system is 230 (to cross check the eurusd spread is 12), should I input 230 directly to tools>symbol settings? what about the lot size and point value for dax? what about gold?
How can I use the historical data efficiently for commodities and indices?
If anybody have used the historical for gold, oil, indices etc, please just share the details and let me know because I can not use this one efficiently and would I'd appreciate any help.
Thanks for the time and effort!..

Hello Lestad,

Please run the attached script on the MetaTrader 4 chart for the corresponding symbol. The script will print the current symbol properties on the chart.
