Hello, 

 

Am new to SQ. Would like to ask:

 

1) I currently have tickstory tick data installed in my MT4 directory, but the SQ manual says it can only import 1 min data from MT4. Is there any way to use the tick data I already have? Or should I just download new tick data using TDD?

 

2) For GBPJPY, what do I put for 'point value in $' when adding a new symbol to the data manager?

 

Thank you!

Hello,

 

1) your tick data should include Ask and Bid prices not just Close price. In such case you would have to convert the data so the Close = Ask and Bid = Close - x pips

2) here is the point value setting guide. Follow http://strategyquant...t-data-setting/
