Installing MT4 Indicators

There are two parts to a Metatrader Indicator. The MQ4 file and the EX4 file.

If you have both files follow the steps below:

1) Save the EX4 files to your indicator folder. Location will be something like this

C:\Program Files\”MetaTrader 4 Broker Name”\experts\indicators folder

2) Restart your Metatrader PLatform if already open otherwise launch it now

3) You can add your indicator via the naviagtion menu on the left by selecting ‘custom indicators’ and then either
double clicking the indicator you wish to add or by drag and dropping the indicator on to the chart

4) You can also add the indicator from the top menu but following the path Insert -> Indicators -> Custom

If you only have the MQ4 part of the indicator save it as you would in the steps above and then follow the next steps:

1) Open MetaEditor via the icon in your MT4 Platform

2) Locate the indicator in the experts\indicator folder and select it

3) The file will open up at which point cick the ‘Compile’ button

4) You can add the indicator assuming no errors are reported. Any errors will need to be fixed to ensure the indicator works properly.

5) If you have done the above and the ‘compile’ process was completed and you can not ‘see’ the indicator in the indicator list when you go to add it, you may need to restart your patform
