    I can't find one and I can't find any clue in documentation (I'm new to MT4 though).

    Can you tell me how to do this ?

    Press the F2 key

    Or from the menu select /Tools: History Center: (select the instrument you want from in the left hand pane) then Export button

    Thanks I didn't know the F2 Key but I would like to do with an automated program so is there a way to do so or is it just impossible technically ?
  4. what is it you're doing with the data after you've got it from MT ?

    i convert MT data into MetaStock also Advanced GET
    with MS i use the MS DownLoader to do the conversion
    with AG i use an MT indicator that converts the data into a format that AG
    can read which it collects from an MT file
    in both cases i have to first update the charts/timeframes i want
    a third alternative is 'converter' utility programs that automatically collect
    and realtime update into other programs such as MS
