How to save historical data on the software

Hello everyone

Is there any way to save historical data loaded on the chart?

I'm backtesting my custom indicator and need to run it on a 1 min and 5 min chart for the past 3 years of GBPUSD, EURUSD, and GBPJPY. I know how to save templates and workspace, but the historical data on any pairs (millions of candles on 1min and 5min chart) would be gone every time I close the software. Is there any way to fix this? like MT4/5 that we could download the data from any date and it would be automatically saved on the software.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Ehsan,

If you are referring to chart data for cTrader Trade, then there is no such option. Data is retrieved from the server on request, when you scroll back on the chart. If you are referring to data for backtesting symbols, then this data is saved as soon as downloaded and reused for later backtesting executions.
