What are offline charts?

In MetaTrader 4, an offline chart lets you continue to refer to a chart, for example for research or analysis, without any updates taking place.

To create an offline chart, follow the below steps:

  • When a chart is open > click File from the main menu > select Save As and save the file to the desired location.
  • Close the MT4 platform then reopen it – the chart should still be displayed. You can minimise the chart but do not close it.
  • Click File in the main menu, then ‘Open Offline’ and select the saved chart to view it in offline mode.
