Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Hi stock333!

Downloading and installing indicators to MT4 should be pretty fast and easy; simply follow these steps:
1. Download the indicator to your computer (make sure you know where it is – either in your “Downloads” folder or on your Desktop)

2. Place it in the appropriate folder:
a. 32-bit systems: C:\Program Files\MetaTrader 4\experts\indicators
b. 64-bit systems: C:\Program Files (x86)\MetaTrader 4\experts\indicators
3. Close and reopen MT4
a. The indicator will be in the Navigator window, either in “Indicators” or, more likely “Custom Indicators”
4. Once you see it on MT4, simply drag-and-drop the indicator onto a chart, check the inputs (change them if you wish) and click OK
That should be it! If you run into issues along the way, feel free to PM me or post here!

Thanks and best of luck trading!
