How to Get Import Minute Data to Work
I know the imported tick data don't work, but it seems like I was able to get minute data to work, once. If you were able to get the minute data to work, what combination did you use? Like, what database, what data, and etc?
NOTE: This is imported data and I just want to use the minute data to ultimately create hourly candlesticks for strategy.
I think this is like my third or fouth post, having something to do with data. I don't want to continue to spam the forum with these posts. To just end it all, can I get the current limitation with backtesting strategies from years back? In other words, is it a way that one can backtest from over a year ago? I don't want you guys to feel that I'm being impatient, but at the same time, I would love to use what is available. :) I have a lot of time right now, but towards the end of August, I will have less time, so it is critical that I try to get as much done as possible.
Yes Chris, you can do that with minute OHLC from Histdata and you must select Bid as the data type. Also, you have to do the backtest with quick backtesting (not visualize backtesting). I'm looking for an answer similar to this. It seemed like I was able to get this to work once, but I can't think of the combination that I used.
