I access MT4 through Capital City but I am not able to upload any custom indicators because my directory for this program does not contain MQL4, Expert, or Indicators folders. I am new to this so I hope I have described the problem using the right language. I need to know why these folders are not found in the directory and how I can get them in order to upload/insert custom indicators. Thanks.

  1. Why did you post your MT4 question in the Root / MT5 General section instead of the MQL4 section, (bottom of the Root page?)

    Next time post in the correct place. The moderators will likely move this thread there soon.

  2. You are probably not looking at the correct place.
