Resetting Your MT4 Chart Data
Posted on: 21 July 2014 , by: Pepperstone Support , category: MetaTrader 4
When it has been some time since opening your MT4 platform, gaps can appear in the charts. If a simple refresh of the chart does not work, you will need to look at manually resetting your MT4 chart data.
First, you will need to go to the tools tab in the platform and select the History Center.
You will then be required to select the pair and time frame which you want to reset.
Select ALL of the data and click Delete twice (to select all – Click the first record, hold SHIFT and scroll to the bottom to select the last record while holding SHIFT).
Next, close the History Center and choose (for this example) the EURUSUD 1m chart.
As you can see, the chart is now blank and the history is no longer available. If this stops on the “Waiting for Update” screen, change the time frames of the chart and switch back to the 1M.
Your chart should repopulate with fresh data, clearing up any gaps in your price history and bringing your chart up to date.
