    MACD Best Entries !!!

    I have checked previous thread with the same name, but
    did not find what I actually need.

    The difficulty I face is to set the indicators as mentioned in the
    strategy !

    When I select Moving Average the default period set is 100.
    If I want to select another MV of 50 what we have to do ?
    When I reset the tab down I get 14. So how to set to 50 ?

    Next, how to select the TWO MACDs. When I select MACD
    what I get is the histogram. How can a select another MACD
    oscillator style ?

    Would appreciate if someone could shed some light on it.

    Try to drag and drop "moving averages" indicators, open up the "indicators" tab not "custom indicators"
    when you place on chart you will get a box pop up change the value from 100 to anything you want.example 50
    after that drag and drop again same moving average, get pop up box, change value to 100 or 200 as you want, add till you get all moving averages you want.

    Next, how to select the TWO MACDs. When I select MACD
    what I get is the histogram. How can a select another MACD
    oscillator style ?


    the default indicators might not provide that MACD 2 lines, you need to search for "MACD 2 lines" custom indicators and add it to the chart

    hope this can help you.

    Hi Chandra,

    Thanks for the detailed explanation.

    I googled for MACD 2 lines and I found a link in the forum of ForexFactory.

    I copy pasted it to the indicators (Programs-Meta4 folder-Experts-Indicators)
    and restarted the computer (I understand that we have to restart the Meta4;
    does that mean that we have to exit Meta4 and open again ?). But when I opened
    I did not find that indicator ? I understood from many posts people face such problems.

    Could you suggest me a solution for this. I am stuck with the inability to even test this
    simple strategy.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    I dont use meta trader because I never traded spot forex, I get all my charting from my normal stock broker, OptionsXpress, the account is free and it has all the indicators you could want.

    Zanadu:

    - when in MT4 type "Ctrl-N" to open the Navigator side window (if you don't have it already open)
    - then look in the folder "Custom Indicators"

    If you still don't find it there you may have copied it to the wrong place ... or you have too many indicators loaded (which I don't think it's the case)
