You need to right click on it, choose "open with..." and pich Meta editor from the folder you have instaled MT4. Once you do that, you should be OK

Thanx I will now try all this

smjones:
I am assuming by upload you mean to make it work on your chart.

To make this indicator work, because it is a compiled program and not source code.

This is how I do it. This goes for any MT4 indicator, not just this one.

1. down load it from FF to Program Files/ Your Broker name/ experts/ indicators.

for example, my broker name is for charting MT4 is Strategybuilderfx.

So mine would be ProgramFiles/Strategybuildefx/experts/indicators

2 now that the ex4 compiled indicator is in the indicator folder on your computer, go ahead and start your Metatrader. If you already had it running, close it and restart it.

3 Now open the navagator window from the view menu at the top.

4 now select the indicator by it's name from the list of custom indicators that are listed after the experts.

5. Now left click on ithat indicator and keep holding down the click key and drag the indicator onto the chart.

6. now set the inputs the way you want them and click ok.

the proceedure is exactly the same for the source code version, because when you shut of mt4 and restart it it automatically compiles all source code files in all the folders...

If you need more help, just PM me and I will talk to on the phone about it on my 800 number.

Thanks hope that helps

put it in your indicators folder>>>>>>open metaquotes and it will be in custom indicators....if not open up metaeditor and find the indicator and compile it then reset mt4 and it will be there...if not use SELECT PROGRAM and you can search for the mt4 program to open it...trading might be hard for you you have to download the indicator to use it..put it in the experts/indicators folder..

How to Add the Indicators to your MT4 Platform:

After you have downloaded the Indicators and Chart Template, you need to put them in the proper location in your MT4 Platform. The Indicators go in the INDICATORS Folder which is located inside the EXPERTS Folder and the Template goes in the TEMPLATES Folder, which is in the same area as the EXPERTS Folder. Here is a quick and easy way to accomplish this.

For the Indicators:

* Right click on the SHORTCUT Icon of your Brokers MT4 Platform

* Select PROPERTIES

* Click the FIND TARGET (or Open File Location)Button on the Shortcut TAB

* Locate the EXPERTS Folder in the window and open it

* Locate the INDICATORS Folder in the window and open it

* Drag all the Indicators into the INDICATORS Folder (not the Template)

For the Template:

* Right click on the SHORTCUT Icon of your Brokers MT4 Platform

* Select PROPERTIES

* Click the FIND TARGET (or Open File Location) Button on the Shortcut TAB

* Locate the TEMPLATES Folder in the window and open it

* Drag the FXTradepro Chart Template into the TEMPLATES Folder

* Close all Windows & Start up your MT4 Platform

Setting Up Your Charts with the Indicators & Template:

Now that you have the Indicators and Template loaded into the MT4 Platform, this is what you do to get everything set on a Chart.

* Open a new Chart from the FILE Menu on the Platform

* Once the Chart is open, right click on the Chart. A pull-down menu will appear. Select TEMPLATE. Another pull-down sub-menu will appear. Select FXTradepro Chart Template.

Now you should have the same Chart showing as I do. You can do this same procedure for any Currency Pair that you wish to follow. Below, I have Posted a picture of the Chart set-up along with the Indicators and Template.

If you need further assistance with setting any of this up, please post your questions or email me and I will help you through the process.
