Hello, I am trying to import FTSE data (daily). The file is in CSV format (though I have tried txt as well).
I have created the new FTSE symbol.
Forex Tester shows no errors on import screen but when I click on the 'Import' button, I get an error message: 'Can not import' and no other explanation. I have looked at the log files folder but nothing about this.
Could you let me know what is wrong?
I cannot seem to attach files so here is a sample of the file (there are no column names).
Many thanks

I do not see any time information here, and date column is going in opposite direction from last date to previous.

Does there have to be a time? I am trying to build a daily chart. Also, I didn't know what the date order needed to be.
I will try reversing the date order.

I have finally managed to import it (Had to reverse the date order, make sure all columns are the same width (otherwise it just locks up with no error message), saved it as tab delimited text (csv doesn't seem to work)).

Now I can see my daily chart! However, I need some help in defining the symbol properties. I cannot set it so that each 0.1 point movement costs 1 unit of account currency.
Many thanks for your help
