Forex Tester allows you to import an unlimited number of currency pairs and years of history data in almost any possible text format (ASCII *.csv, *.txt) and in MetaTrader4 history format (*.hst). We strongly recommend importing 1-minute data for accurate testing (it is possible to import higher timeframes but testing results may not be as good).
Note: To increase the quality of testing we recommend using broker-specific M1 or even tick data, as it will give you almost 100% quality of testing. You can download broker-specific data from our Data Service.
