Opening an Offline Chart on MT4
In MT4 you may want to open an offline stock chart and analyze this chart without having it updating in real time. Although it is not often that a stock trader wants to open an offline stocks trading chart, this option is provided for in the MT4 stocks trading platform.
Shown below, the File Navigation drop down menu the second option is that of opening an offline stocks trading chart.
Once a stock trader clicks the open offline stock chart a popup window will appear, a stock trader can then select which offline stock chart to open from this popup menu.
From the above popup menu a stock trader can then open any offline stock chart that is listed above, the number of stocks 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.
