Re: Is there a way to download trade data using tickstory

Hi Marketstudent, The data currently provided by Dukascopy is pricing only. Typically in FX you only get the pricing information and not the trades. There is no way to get the trade information from the price as this is a different set of information. That said, if you need to input the trades into ...

Re: No data downloading (Access denied)

Hi Armyda,

The reason why you are getting your error is because you have specified a "Dukascopy Store location" which is writeable. That is, instead of specifying C:\Program Files\ (which is not writable), please specify a writable location such as in your Documents folder.

Thanks.

Re: Can't activate tickstory

Hi Simon, Technically speaking, the tick data is segmented by hour, this means that multiple HTTP connections need to be made for each day's worth of data (and each request can take a ~50-100 milliseconds to initiate). Simply speaking, your internet download speed is not the only metric that determi...

Re: Error at opening of ATM

Thanks for your issue report, Gin. Could you please tell us what regional settings you have? It looks like it might have something to do with date formatting.

Thanks.

Re: MT5 backtest problem - Market closed

Hi Thiagompereira This seems to be an MT5-specific error that has been raised in a few MQL threads such as: https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/355734 https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/347212 I would suspect it has something to do with the setup of the custom symbol in MT5. Maybe try copying the symbol from a...

Re: Tickstory's MT5 Data - why is it better than "Every tick based on real ticks"?

Hi Anthony, We're not aware of any MT5 broker that provides quality tick data over a number of pairs and for more than a year or two of history. The reason for this is often due to the cost of providing the data servers. The best way might be to examine the number of ticks and the available historic...

Re: Spread modelling in MT4 using Tickstory

Hi Adibi83, If you are referring to the fixed spread functionality in MT4 Strategy Tester (as opposed to our new variable spread function in our Advanced Tester ), then all it does is add x pips to the Bid price. Therefore: Bid=(tick price exported by Tickstory) Ask=Bid + Spread So this will affect ...
