Shown below, the File Navigation drop down menu the second option is that of opening an offline xauusd chart.
Once a xauusd trader clicks the open offline xauusd chart a popup window will appear, a xauusd trader can then select which offline xauusd chart to open from this popup menu.
From the above popup menu a xauusd trader can then open any offline xauusd chart that is listed above, the number of gold price bars that have been saved within a particular offline saved chart is recorded as the number of bars as well as the date from which the chart is saved up to the last time it was updated.
