Add Intraday Indicator to MetaTrader4

To add Intraday indicator to the MetaTrader4 follow the steps below:

  1. Run MetaTrader4
  2. Choose the Indicators path from the menu "file"/ "Open data folder"/ "MQL4"/ "indicators"

  3. Copy indicator file (that you downloaded in step 1) and Paste it in the "indicator" folder
  4. Restart MetaTrader4
  5. Indicator calls Windows and Internet Explorer library functions. So DLL imports must be allowed. It can be done in two ways:
  • First way:
    Go to Tools menu and select Options.

Select the Expert Advisors tab.

Put a tick at Allow DLL imports and click OK.

In this way, any Expert, Script or Custom Indicator, which is inserted into charts afterward, will be allowed to call DLL functions. Unless it is disallowed in its own properties.
Also in this way, indicators previously inserted to the charts are not affected.

  • Second way:
    During inserting indicator to the chart, in Common tab of window put a tick at Allow DLL imports and click OK.
    In this way, the indicator will be allowed to import library functions in the current chart only.


You can also activate this window by Crtl+I or from Charts menu and selecting Indicator List. Then click the indicator name in the list and choose Edit.
