Import forex ascii data help

Postby segut » 01 Nov 2012

Hello, I am testing the demo to see if I can use this program to backtest forex trading strategies. I cannot find an easy way to import daily forex ascii data. Can anyone provide some help? For example, I have an daily ascci file for EURUSD with format mm/dd/yyy, o,h,c,l

How can I import this file on a chart? This should be easy like in other programs. But I was not able to figure out how to do it. Can this be done in a few steps?

Thanks Dave, it worked nicely. I guess the article could be a bit more clear to indicate that if a symbol does not exist, then it must be added and the appropriate exchange must be specified (in this case FOREX).
