How to Add Indicators on Android and iPhone

Similar to using an indicator on your Metatrader PC platform, an indicator can be placed directly on your chart or attached below (for example when using an oscillator indicator).

The first thing you need to do is either create a free account inside the Metatrader mobile platform or connect your existing account.

NOTE: If you do not yet have a free MT4 or MT5 account you can get one here.

 

To connect your existing account that you have created through your broker follow these instructions;

  • Open your MT4 / MT5 mobile platform.
  • Click on ‘settings’ and ‘manage accounts’.
  • Click on the + symbol to add your existing account.
  • Choose ‘login to existing account’.
  • Search for your broker and then select them.
  • Enter your login and password and then sign in.

 

To add indicators to your mobile trading platform follow these instructions;

  • Open your MT4 or MT5 mobile platform.
  • Open the chart you wish to apply the indicator to.
  • Select the add android indicatorsymbol.
  • You will then have two options. You can either add an indicator to the main chart or to the indicator window.
  • Select the customize android indicator symbol and choose from the range of indicators.
  • Select the indicators parameters you wish to use and hit done to apply it.

 

How to Remove Metatrader Mobile Indicators

To delete any indicators you no longer want applied first hit theadd android indicatorsymbol.

Select the delete Delete indicator symbol and you will be able to tick the indicators you want to remove.

Once the indicators you want deleted are selected hit the delete button again and they will be removed.

 

How to Modify Indicators

To modify and change the parameters for any indicators you already have applied first hit the indicator button to bring up your indicators.

Select the indicator you wish to customize and you will be presented with the options you can change.

Make your changes and select ‘done’.

 

How to Use Custom Metatrader Indicators in Android and iPhone

At this point in time adding or using custom indicators such as the 1,2,3 pattern indicator or auto Fibonacci indicator is not a built in function.

The most common workaround that traders use to have these types of indicators available is by either using a Microsoft based tablet or mirroring their computer to their phone.

Whilst using a Microsoft tablet that allows the full functions of Metatrader is an easier option, it also defeats the purpose of mobile trading.

When setting up mirroring you are able to access your full suite of Metatrader tools that your computer is running including all of the custom indicators. Read how to set up remote computer mirroring here.
