Astronautica posted: You say that MT5 is better for backtesting but how do you get long periods of historical tick data? For MT4 you can use tickstory but I do not know anything that is available for MT5.
In MT5 you do NOT need to provide data. These are downloaded from broker directly.
How many years of data can you get? Is it tick data? I looked once before and only saw a years worth of data
Maybe yearly data but I am not sure; since I have a very short term trading experience on Mt5 trading!

Same for me. I am quite fine in mt4. if I will face problem in mt4 I will then go to the mt5. Otherwise I am happy with mt4.
