# How to code: If at least n of N conditions are met, then

How do I create an indicator with a set of say N conditions, and then say indicator only paints if n of those conditions are true? in mql4.

You could set up a counter, whenever a condition is true the counter will increment by 1. At the end you could check if n conditions are true.

Not a professional coder so really have no idea how that is done. Is this something that I need someone to do for a small fee?

Yes. I think so!
