MT4 Indicator Not Working

Question

MT4 Indicator Not Working Fix
There have been many thousands of custom indicators written for MT4 most of which are available for free download scattered over the web, on rare occasions you will load an indicator and it will freeze the platform (see here https://community.ig.com/forums/topic/6198-mt4-not-responding/) or sometimes not appear or sometimes only appear partially.

Possible reasons for this include incompatibility, the current MT4 update is something like 1090 and some indicators written for earlier versions will not work on later versions. Also check the indicators Input settings list that arrows, lines etc are switched to True not False. There may be a missing .dll file in mt4's library needed for the custom indicator, check the dependency tab in the indicator pop up box.

If you have the source code (the .mq4 file) you can try the re-compile fix. Open the MetaEditor, double click Indicators then double click the problem indicator. Choose a number at random, change the number to a different value and press 'Compile' then change the number back and press Compile once more, look to see if the indicator is now working. The EX4. file of an indicator can't be modified and so won't appear in the MetaEditor list.

    • Hi does anybody know if there are any terms and conditions specific to the use of the Rest API?  In particular is it within the terms and conditions for me to use a third party application to open and manage trades on my account via the Rest and Streaming APIs    
    • ''Why it's almost like these 'vaccines' don't do the one thing vaccines are supposed to do...''  @JamesDelingpole An unvaccinated worker set off an outbreak at a U.S. nursing home where most residents were immunized. - The New York Times (nytimes.com) Reminder (from previous post) that SAGE expect of deaths in next wave 70% will be of those who have been vaccinated. Mostly because of age group but also because of Vaccine Enhanced Disease (also mentioned in a previous post). As in the video directly above, in animal studies in previous attempts to create gene altering vaccines ALL the ferrets died, usually on contact with the wild version of the virus between 3 and 12 months after vaccination which caused a fatal autoimmune response. (cytokine storm, so don't stop taking the vitamin D)   Meanwhile, the FT on India ...   Deaths, covid deaths and context. Data is nothing without context.   And a lookback at just what was possible and what was not? 🤔
