Sorry if this is not the correct place for this guys, but I have a question about how MT5 works. I'm just beginning to test it and things are not going as expected. I created a custom symbol and then imported data from another broker in order to do some backtesting. I followed the steps detailed here:

https://www.metaquotes.net/en/metatrader5/news/5028

I didn't want to overwrite data from the original symbol, this is why I created a custom one. Problem is that nothing is seen whe I open the chart. The 'Waiting for...' message is the only thing shown. Could someone give me a hint, please?

What is custom symbol? MT4 to Mt5 transition may be problematic if you talk about specific things like symbols and EA's, they made some tweaks in how coded things work.

There should be some force which will be force people to learn abilities of that topics entirely and clearly. I am talking here about new version of Metatrader which many people seems still not use absolutely on many many params out there.

You need to see if all the MT5 settings are okay or even reinstall it, in fact sometimes it can be a connection problem, so don't worry, it's a solvable problem...
