Are you on Windows? Because the Signals are supported Windows OS only.
Besides, some brokers are not allowing the Signals (I did noot meet this case personally but as I remember - the users reported about).

Forum on trading, automated trading systems and testing trading strategies

Way to find signal in MT4 platform?

Sergey Golubev, 2017.02.23 12:49

You can use search on the top right corner of any page of the forum for example.

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

As to finding the signal (any signal) by name in the Metatrader so you can use Metatrader's search feature as well, for example:

MT4 - 


MT5 -
