Hi stock333!

Downloading and installing indicators to MT4 should be pretty fast and easy; simply follow these steps:
1. Download the indicator to your computer (make sure you know where it is – either in your “Downloads” folder or on your Desktop)

2. Place it in the appropriate folder:
a. 32-bit systems: C:\Program Files\MetaTrader 4\experts\indicators
b. 64-bit systems: C:\Program Files (x86)\MetaTrader 4\experts\indicators
3. Close and reopen MT4
a. The indicator will be in the Navigator window, either in “Indicators” or, more likely “Custom Indicators”
4. Once you see it on MT4, simply drag-and-drop the indicator onto a chart, check the inputs (change them if you wish) and click OK
That should be it! If you run into issues along the way, feel free to PM me or post here!

Thanks and best of luck trading!
