Looks like a font problem. Is this a new problem? Are you running MetaTrader on WINE or something similar?

You have used the wrong symbol code! Hint Editor's Reference search for "ENUM_OBJECT" and the Arrow-codes - or post your code and use the SRC-button!

Don't know if this applies to your problem or not.

When you set up to code a new indicator and use the wizard you will get this

//--- setting a code from the Wingdings charset as the property of PLOT_ARROW
   PlotIndexSetInteger(0,PLOT_ARROW,159);

 which does nothing and should be replaced with

SetIndexArrow(0,159);

Maybe you don't have the wingdings font loaded on your computer?
