Change 5 Decimals to 4 decimals

My broker, OANDA, provides a 5 decimal data feed.
However, this messes up the calculations that MT4 does.
As a result, I see different things as compared to a 4 decimal data feed to a 5 decimal data feed.

Is there any way I can change my MT4 to filter out the 5 decimal feed and to get 4 decimal feed only?

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

I don't think it would be found in this forum. I have seen conversions and I thought it was coming packaged in MT4?

I've tried that.
If it had solved my problem, I wouldn't have asked here.

I also did search in google to know the solution and found this thread in another forum:

Thread : How to get to 4 Decimal Places on MT4?

Description: Might sound ridiculous but my last MT4 platform came with 4 D.P and my new broker has it to 5 Decimal places. Thanks for the help.

Reply: It is a broker by broker issue. If your broker has 5 dp's than you are stuck with it. Also that means that POINT is now .00001 instead of .0001 so you have to check that in your code.

It can be done by code but I don't know how to do it.
