Editor is irrelevant. SL/TP has nothing to do with indicators. Indicators can't trade.

Add your stops when you open a trade, or program your EA to, or use a GUI EA like mine (for MT4): Indicators: 'Money Manager Graphic Tool' indicator by 'takycard' Forum - Page 6

It is a "script." It's the EA source (MT4.) Put it in the EA folder, compile it, add it to a chart.

There are the indicators and there are the EAs.
EAs are for automated trading.

There are good profitable EAs, and there are bad EAs ...
EAs were made by the coder/developers using the trading strategy.
The trading strategy can be made using the indicators.
