I have many indicators, scripts and EAs. I know that MT4 needs  the following architecture:

MQL4>Experts > EAs

MQL4>Indicators > Indicators

MQL4>Scripts > Scripts

There can be folders within as well! For example:

MQL4>Experts>EAgroup1>EA1

MQL4>Experts>EAgroup1>EA2

MQL4>Experts>EAgroup2>EA3

MQL4>Experts>EAgroup2>EA4

MQL4>Indicators > IndicatorGroup1>Indi1

MQL4>Indicators > Scalpers>Indi2

MQL4>Indicators > Scalpers>Indi3

But what about EAs which depend on some indicators? Will the EAs work if the indicators are within subfolders? Does Metatrader4 look for indicators recursively within the subfolder structure?
