Opening an Offline Chart on MetaTrader 4
In MetaTrader 4 you may want to open an offline stock indices chart and analyze this chart without having it updating in real time. Although it is not often that a stock indices trader wants to open an offline stock indices chart, this option is provided for in the MetaTrader 4 stock index platform.
Shown below, the File Navigation drop down menu the second option is that of opening an offline stock indices chart.
Once a stock indices trader clicks the open offline stock indices chart a popup window will appear, a stock indices trader can then select which offline stock indices chart to open from this popup menu.
From the above popup menu a stock indices trader can then open any offline stock indices chart that is listed above, the number of stock index 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.
This option is not required so much in trading but it is good to explain it for tutorial purposes.
