Hi! This site is great! Where can I download this indicator?
Thanks!

This indicator was found while testing Accucharts platform from FX Solutions. For MT4 you'd probably need to code one. We weren't able to find ADL for MT4, unfortunately.

 

Please i would want to know how i can adjust the FRACTAL indicator?

 

Native MT4 Fractal indicator comes without settings parameters.

 

Please put me through on the uses of the following; MACD, FRACTALS, PARABOLIC SAR, BOLLINGO BANDS, RELATIVE STRENGHT INDEX, AND MOVING AVERAGE.

Let me know the requirements or rather the process of starting LIVE FX TRADING with you. Below is my email address;
