Market replay is not a default feature of MT5.

However, you have two options that you can proceed with.

1. It is possible to use the built-in Trading Strategy Tester. The entire operation of the Strategy Tester is based on historical quotes of currencies, stocks and other assets. During testing, the Expert Advisor goes through the accumulated quotes and performs virtual transactions according to its algorithm. This procedure allows an evaluation of how the Expert Advisor would have traded in the past.

2. You can also download user-generated content created by other traders using the platform. MT5 has a vast amount of traders creating and sharing custom code for other traders to utilize. There are various Market Replay scripts out there that have been created and can be downloaded for free. We cannot suggest any in particular, but a quick google search or glancing through MT5’s coding base: https://www.mql5.com/en/code should solve your issue.

Thanks,
Jake
