Open your MT4 terminal, click File>Open Data Folder this is where you need to place your Indicators EAs and scripts, in this folder structure inside MQL4\Indicators MQL4\Experts and MQL4\Scripts

An Indicator I was placed inside MQ4\Indicators folder. But after I reopen the MT4 platform, the Indicator was not at the custom indicators under Navigator window. May I know what's wrong with it?

Thank you!

Do you get any error messages in the Experts or Journal tabs ? are you copying across just the .ex4 or the .mq4 as well ?

My message was not meant for you . . .

Show your code where you use the MathLog() function and the definition of the variables you are passing to it. And please use the SRC button.

when you download a new platform, you have to store it there :

C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\ give_this_terminal_a_name

You have to look for this place,once the download window show up, clik brownse

find appData>Roaming>Metaquote>Terminal

then "create a new folder", name it : "give_this_terminal_a_name"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your terminal is not stored a the right place, I think
