Backtest data

When you backtest an idea the scope of bars is around 5000. But can you go i.e to jan 2015 to mar 2015 and use the 5000 bars for that time period? or is it always 5000 bars from today's study?

  • Hello,

    The depth of the chart history on any timeframe is 5000 bars. For intraday charts history also includes data up to the beginning of the week. We are going to increase the amount of historical data available on a chart up to 10000 bars but there is no ETA at the moment.
