How to Load an Indicator on to a Chart
Before you start, make sure your MetaTrader platform is open. To load one of the existing indicators that are already on the MetaTrader platform to one of your charts, you need to open the navigator window. If it is not already opened, simply click on View --> Navigator. You can also use the hot key Ctrl+N to open it.
In the navigator window, click on the "+" located next to the Indicator symbol to view the various indicators you can select to load on to your chart. Once you have decided on an indicator, click and drag that indicator on to your chart.
After you have done this a window will pop up that will allow you to customize and change the values and settings of the indicator.
Once you have selected the settings that you would like, click okay and your indicator will appear on to your chart.
To quickly edit any of the settings on any of your indicators, click the chart you want then press Ctrl + I to bring up the Indicator window. This will allow you to easily manage and edit the settings of the indicators located on this chart.
