With the interest of ground state near CDW at low temperature, the electronic properties under high pressure, at low temperature and in high magnetic field of HMTSF-TCNQ are examined. Up to 8 GPa, the overall resistivity-temperature behaviour are unchanged, i.e. broad resistance minimum around 100-150 K and subtle resistance decrease below around 30 K. The pressure insensitive nature is not consistent with previous data. At 1.5-1.6 GPa, but not at P = 0, a novel hysteretic behaviour and probable quantum oscillations in magnetoresistance are found in a clear form.
