The Tick Data Suite can now import custom tick data


The new Tick Data Suite beta version adds the ability to import custom tick data. The whole import process relies on automatic detection that can handle everything starting from the symbol name and digits and ending with the actual format of the file being imported. Even the GMT and DST of the imported data can be automatically identified, making it very easy to import data from other applications (such as Metatrader 5) and use it in your MT4 backtests.
