Hi there,

I have an EA in MT4 and I don't have the source code. I want to back test it using historic tick data from FT4 as I have VIP data. Is it possible to covert the tick data from FT4 to MT4?

Hello,

Sorry, but MT4 platform doesn't allow importing tick data, only minutes data can be imported.

Therefore, I can recommend you to download 1-minute data from our server, then import it to the MT4 platform and then test your EA on M1 timeframe.
