    How to install indicators in MT4

    Download the MQ4/EX4 file into your C:Program Files\MetaTrader 4\indicators folder

    If you download the zip file, unzip it and locate the MQ5 file in C:\Program Files\MetaTrader 4\MQL4\Indicators or any other folder where our program is installed

    Double-click on the file, the Mq4 editor will open and hit “Compile”/or we have template folder to add particular indicator

    Restart your MetaTrader 4 application
    Attachment 23492
    On the left hand side, look for the “Navigator” window and under the “Indicators” tab you should find the Indicators

    Drag (Click and drag) the indicator onto the chart

    Choose your settings and click OK

    This is very simple thread but i thought it is a need for every trader because there are lot of indicator here we are discussing so if we do not know how to apply them all will waste and we do not have a clear mind about positive and negative of particular indicator so good luck to everyone to use indicator here .

    Honestly with the help of this explanation traders can find it easier to install indicator in mt4 platform, but I really believe in default indicators that are in mt4 platform and it will not be a bad idea for traders to test most of the indicators that he/she have come across in various websites and forums by installing them in the mt4 trading platform, so traders that interested installation of indicators should follow this thread and do it.

Although indicator doesn't help much for make profit but new traders are always looking for new indicator.

    You shouldn't use the C:/Programs Files/MetaTrader* to install indicators. On Windows Vista and newer user data is stored in C:/Users/<you>/AppData/, MetaTrader platforms create their own folders there, you can open them directly form terminal File/Open Data Folder menu. That is where you should install indicators.
    Additionally in MetaEditor you can download directly from Code Base, without opening browser or folders at all.

    well it aslo can be added through your app data folder where all apps user data is available where you can add in the indicators folder,but i think it also can be added where your platform is present just to add the indicator files in the MQL4 folder where all indicators are present in the indicator folder
