The Navigator

The Navigator is the control center of MT4 and the place from which you will perform most of your functions, from logging into a specific account to accessing files you need. Figure 1-4 shows the navigator.

The Navigator contains five distinctive areas:

Account Log in
Allows you to switch between the different Forex accounts that you may have.

Here you can view all of your indicators; in order to view your indicator, simply drag it onto your chart and a "parameters input" box will show up. Here you can select your preferred parameters. Once complete, the indicator will appear on the chart.

Expert Advisors
One of the best features of MetaTrader 4 is that it allows you to use trading robots on your account. This way, you can implement strategies without having to manually place orders. The robot will do this for you. In order to implement a robot (Expert Advisor) in your Metatrader, you simply drag it to the chart and make sure that you enable it to allow live trading, when prompted.

Once you implement the expert advisor on a currency pair chart you should see the expert advisor name at the top right hand corner. Remember that the expert advisor is functioning only on the chart of the currency pair which you loaded it on and only on the time frame which you selected. As you can see there are some parameters that you can set when implementing an expert advisor; such as going long only, short only or both long and short.

Once you have set all of your parameters and clicked ok, you should see a smiley face picture next to the EA name in the top right hand corner, if you do not see this, make sure that the expert advisor button was pressed on the tool bar.

Custom Indicators
Custom indicators are indicators other than the preset ones provided by the platform. They function in a similar fashion as the regular indicators.

Scripts are preset commands for trading and risk management. They will allow your account to perform certain functions. For example there is a script you can use to delete all pending orders at once.
