    Installing of EA in mt4 (explanation)

    Installation of the Robot or EA ( Explanation)
    Here are steps by following them you may can install a EA(expert advisor) or Robot.
    1. This is very important that your trading charting software means , mt4 should not be open, it should need to be close state , if it's open first you do have to close it , by dragging the mouse cursor to X or simply a command Alt+F4 .

    2. Now Copy the files of the Robot or expert advisor which usually in ex4 or mq4 extension by right click of the mouse copy or command Ctrl+C by selection mouse or moving arrows of keyboard that file , after copying file , go where you have installed the mt4, by default you can see your file like this way
    C:\Program Files\MetaTrader 4 - RoboForex\experts

    3. using the exper advisor , having the custom based indicator then ,meta trader would have not that indicators for EA then you also have to copy the files into the
    indicators folder as well like this way
    C:\Program Files\MetaTrader 4 - RoboForex\experts\indicators

    4. Now you should open the mt4 after copying the files

    5. Below the tools bar , market watch and below it Navigator Box ,if you don't see it then simply give command Ctrl+N , it will be there , then slight where Expert advisors written , it would has + sign click on , many file would be opened, select that file name which you have copied into mt4 ,as you will press the right click via mouse option appear attach to the chart , click on it

    6. After Attach to the chart , a box appear in your mt4 window, now you can order the EA to do the automatic trading for you , by giving the check sign on
    "Allow Live Trading" and click on "OK".

    7. Now almost every thing is okay , remaining step is like on and of, After doing step number six on meta trader Tool bar , you will see the " Expert Advisor" option , click on it , as you do it its color change to red to green and your EA will start working.



    8. To make sure that rather your EA is working mean to ensure it's on , so at the chart from right side to up , if there is face with smile means and if not a smiling face or X sign,mean EA is not on yet .


    9. Finally you should restart the mt4 , just like we usually do when we install any software to ensure its works perfectly , because some time EA is on but did not takes any trader , so close mt4 as i described above do not change any setting while doing this.
    10. Now you should wait so your EA can catch trades according to the programming !

    Hi thanks for the advice how to install and add the expert advisor to metatrader plat form. What I would like to know is it possible to re-code an EA and what type of scripts do I use? As I'm not too familiar with coding and robots etc , I usually trade manually so I'd like to also make some dollars while I'm not sitting at my laptop trading all day and is it possible for an expert advisor to profit off each pip? Basically taking profits every move the market makes in simple terms like having zero spread? Could anyone assist me please I'd happily appreciate your kindness thanks

Try to focus on 1-2 account, then let the Expert Advisor handle the others, just make sure you use a good Expert Advisor that match with your trading style.
    that is right that the trader may need the robot if he has more than one account may need the robot to let it to work with some of his trading account, the trader needs to find the suitable expert advisor that is suitable to his trading style as not all expert advisor can trade all styles of trading but each of them has its own function of working

    I also think that manual trading is the best option because every moment we experience how to move the market & when we will keep patient.
