Step 1: Download The Indicator To Your Computer
Many times, when you click to download a custom mt4 indicator, by default, it will automatically download to the “Downloads” folder in your computer.

Step 2: Go To Your Mt4 Trading Platform And Click “Open Data Folder”
Step 3: Click open the “MQL4” folder
Step 4: Click Open the “Indicators” Folder
Step 5: Paste The Custom MT4 Indicator Into The “Indicators” Folder
Step 6: Close Your MT4 Trading Platform And Then Restart It
After you’ve saved your custom mt4 indicator in its appropriate “indicators” folder, you need to close your MT4 trading platform that is open and re-start it.
If you’ve never used MT4 trading platform previously and don’t know what to do, the first thing is you need to open up your Metatrader 4 chart.

Now, what I’ve shown above is when you want to install with your mt4 chart already open.
