Adding An Expert Advisor

Adding an expert advisor is very simple.

First you must install the expert advisor in to the correct folder on your computer. This is usually C:\Program Files\MT4 of Your Broker\experts.

Copy your EA to this folder unless told otherwise by the EA provider. You may also have to add other files to different folders depending on the EA. Restart platform if already open.

It will also be necessary to set up the platform to use expert advisors. Go to Menu -> Tools -> Options -> Expert Advisors and you will see parameters that you will need to set. These can usually be EA specific but in most cases it will be as below.

Once you have done that you need to go to the platorm and make sure the “expert advisor” button in the platform header menu has a green arrow. If it is not, click on it.

Now you must add your EA to the current platform .Double click on Expert Advisors in the Navigator menu on the left hand side and you will find listed the EAs available to you. Right click on the and click on “Attach to a chart” option
on the one you wish to use.

The Expert Advisors option window appears in order to allow you to adjust the settings. Again this will be EA specific. So consult the information provied with your EA.

Once you have done all these steps you should see the EA name and “happy face” on your chart (usually top right). If you see an X then there is an issue with either the EA or the set up of it an you should go over the previous steps.
