How To Install Indicators On MT4 and Metatrader 5 (MT5)


This video is for all the people who are having trouble figuring out how to install indicators on mt4 and Metatrader 5 (MT4 and MT5) that I have shared with them at

The process is apparently not as obvious as what you might think because many people are confused when they click on a Metatrader 4 or 5 indicator and all the see is a document full of code. Some people also successfully download the files and then click on them and are asked what program to open them in and again they see the document full of code and don’t know what to do with it.

This video will reveal the secret to avoiding this problem: Don’t click on the files and don’t open them. These files are Metatrader files and are not intended to be opened. Just download them and put them into the correct folder in the right location on your computer which is inside the program files folder and inside the folder for your broker’s Metatrader program.

To download Metatrader for free just go to any broker’s web site that offers Metatrader 4 or 5 and click on “open a demo account”.

Here are a few brokers that offer this free software for a demo account:

ThinkForex, FXDD, Interbank FX, FXCM, XE Markets, Alpari U.K., FX Pro

Another great way to find Forex brokers that offer Metatrader charting software that apparently many people are not aware of is to type in keywords into Google such as “Metatrader Forex Broker” and start searching around for lists of Forex brokers.

Here is another secret that many new traders are not aware of: Regardless of what broker you use and what trading platform they have you can look at any charts you like and can use a Metatrader demo account for charts even if your broker has it’s own proprietary platform. Although this sounds totally obvious I still get many people saying that they can’t use Metatrader because their broker doesn’t offer that platform.
