#1 Postby Cloths » Fri Feb 17, 2023 10:16 pm

Firstly, how can I see the file on my PC that forex tester 5 usually download historical data to?
Secondly, can I download historical data from forex tester 5 directly in to a hard disk?
Finally, can I use historical data stored on a hard disk directly on forex test five?

Hello,

All downloaded historical data can be found in C:\ForexTester5\data\History\<name of symbol> folder.

As for your second question, historical data is downloaded into the Forex Tester folder, then you can use "Export" button in the Data Center window to save this data in a file on your hard disk.

And as for your last question, you can import data from a file into the Forex Tester program using "Import from a file" button in the Data Center window.
And then you can use this data in the Forex Tester program during backtesting.
