Hello,
I tried already to look up the answer to my question up via the help section, the web and the discussion forum but didn't find an accurate solution.

I try to use a 4hour data scale for my backtesting (I'm not programming instead I work with the Blocks for my strategy) but none of the provided DataSets (yahoo finance etc.) is working with the 4hour timeframe. I already went to the Data Manager and load data there but in the end it doesn't work to get a backtest with the 4h Chart. Can someone please explain to me steps in order to run my backtests on a 4h timeframe?

Thank you a lot in advance.

Hello,

To display intraday data on the chart you need an intraday data provider. Yahoo and many others are EOD data providers. Out of the box, only Alphavantage (very limited without a paid subscription) and Cryptocompare (cryptos only) support intraday data.

DataExtensions brings Tiingo, FinancialModelingPrep:

IQFeed is a solid and reputable provider of intraday data with a free trial:

Also for limited DataSets (e.g. your portfolio), the broker extensions (Kraken, IB, Alpaca...) could do:

Here's an example using Cryptocompare which comes as a Data Provider right out of the box in WL7:
