History CSV to Chart is a script, which allows you viewing on the chart the history of trades of any strategy downloaded from the mql5.com Signals service. From Signal service choose signal and download the history of trades as a CSV file. To do this, from tab Trading History select Export to CSV. From MetaTrader menu choose File, next from drop down list select Open Data Folder and copy the history file to MQL4\Files\ folder. Attach the script to the chart. If needed, in script properties on tab inputs edit file name. Also, if needed you can change time shift, to match your chart time to the broker time of signal.


Script History CSV to Chart works correctly with signal history files for MetaTrader 4 from mql5.com website. Unfortunately, other websites may provide statements in own formats to see them in editors like MS Excel, not on the MT4 chart.


The History CSV to Chart script shows inputs on start, so you are able to enter email address as password. A properly entered password creates file, which allows use script each time the script is attached to a chart. Information below is for scripts that do not show input tab on start.

Email address in order form is used as your password that you need enter in the indicator or expert properties, tab inputs. For immediate action, most scripts do not show the input window. Scripts are using email address saved in the file MyEmail.csv that was created automatically by our experts or indicators. If you don't have any our EA or indicator you need create file MyEmail.csv by yourself. For example, from text file (.txt). Rename file to MyEmail.csv and edit it with: Email_password;your@email.com in first line. Semicolon separator is important. Ready file please copy to MQL4\Files folder. In order to find correct folder select Files from MetaTrader menu and next from drop down menu choose Open Data Folder. File with wrong email address or which does not match your user name will be deleted automatically by the application. A properly created file will work each time the script is attached to a chart.
