Historical data

Since MT4 Trading Simulator Pro works as an Expert Advisor (EA), it uses the same historical data as any other EA in Metatrader. It does not download or provide any own data. It means that the length of the simulation is limited by the amount of data stored in your MT4. Therefore, always make sure that you have enough historical data before starting the simulation.

It is a good thing to work on a separate demo account so as not to destroy or mix historical data on your live trading account. It is especially important when dealing with any third party data.

Below we present main ways of obtaining historical data:

If this is not enough, you can try importing data from third parties. However, you will have to do it on your own, since Soft4FX does not provide any guidelines. We can only show you a few links:
