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 minimize 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.
