Very interesting indicator. See image attached.

Red is aflat. It seems we are not trading during the aflat.

Rewrite Float Indicator into .mq4 ?

Hello New Digital,

Has anyone rewritten the Float indicator into .mq4 script for MT4? I see there's an .mql version here. On the SB forum there's discussion about this indicator plus an expert was written but the indicator (written by Barry Stander) acts buggy, and no one can locate the source code. I found the following script by 'Bigblock' posted on the Gordago site. I'm not sure what script it is but perhaps the logic is clear to some ambitious soul who'd like to make it work as an .mq4 file? It may be the same as the barry S. 'Float' although this one is longer (I'm no coder)

Of the Float indicators posted above, the one I prefer is the one which creates the ramp of blue histogram lines. I've also attached the buggy Float file from the SB forum.

How to use an EX4 file? Float Indicator

Hello MFX,

Thanks for the assistance. I don't know however, how to turn the EX4 file into a usable .mq4 file?? Do you? When I open it from within MetaEditor I just get a message "Please download newest file." From where it doesn't say. If I turn the file you attached, into a .txt file and try to open it, it's just jibberish. Suggestions?

Thanks,

MJ

Hi,

ex4 file don't open in the Meta Editor.Copy to your paste C:Progam Files\MetaTrader\Experts\Indicators and restart your plataform, If you use iCustom mode it's running too.

Guys, don`t waste your time.The last float , so as Barrys float for MT4 are rearanging themselves in history, so what they show is not true.

I haven`t seen any working version of the float indicator ( not the one with the MA`s, but one with Fibs and Histograms ) on any forum for the last year.

I have tried the float indicator on mq4, it is true that its repaints itself sometimes. The float seems pretty reliable, but there is that small percentage. I have tried it on a demo for awhile many months ago, it seems that you can actually trade off of it, but not 100%. The float indicator posted here is different way different from the one I have used.
