1. Download indicator (anyone you selected for MT4) from Codebase.

2. File - Open Metatrader - MQL4 - Indicators


3. Place indicator to indicators' folder.

4. Compile indicator or restart Metatrader.

5. Open any chart, and attach indicator to the chart (how to attach - read this page).

I have a problem to download from the Market tab in Metatrader 4 - the indicator does not show in the file structure

It is not in the Download folder under Indicators; I Refresh and restart many times

When I go to the File, Open Data Folder, I can see the ".exe" file there

I copy it to the Indicator folder but still don't see it; I think the mql file is needed, right?

When I download from here on the website, it will just want to open Metatrader 4 but not the broker that I am using - I have several MT4 installed.

Any suggestions? Indicator in the free SuperTrend https://www.mql5.com/en/market/product/29157

Indicator from the Market?
You can download it directly from Metatrader, and you will find it (indicator, or EA, or tool which you downloaded from the Market) in market folder (do not move anything from those Market folders) - I just downloaded this indicator and see it in Market subfolder of indicators folder, so I can attach it to the chart:


You should have Windows (not Linux, not Mac) to download indicators from the Market.

Yes, thanks for help, I know all that but it's still not showing there. I tried another install of MT4 and it is there now okay. I think some problem with mql site or file structure on this computer. I didn't move the file - I made a copy of it because that worked before for other indicators.
