Default Increase Size of Price and Date on MT4 Charts

Hi All,

I must be getting old because I am having a tough time see the price and dates on the charts of MT4. Does anyone know how to increase the size of the Price (y-axis) and the Date (x-axis) on the charts for Metatrader? I was able to enlarge everything else except that through playing around with Windows XP.

Thanks in advance!

David

Exclamation Re: Increase Size of Price and Date on MT4 Charts

There is a Big Price indicator for MT4 which will add a Big Price Label (adjustable) right next to the last candle. I see if I can attach it here. It is from a site called Forex_Signal_Live (can be googled). I love it and would not want to be without it.

Enjoy your new comfort for your eyes.

Christoph,
I have searched all over and cannot find Forex_Signals_Live. I did download the Big Price indicator you left. Thank you. I am also looking for the their Time Marker indicator that marks the beginning of each trading day and the start of the trading week. I lost these when I re-installed Windows recently. Do you have the Time Marker? Or can you send me a link to where I can get it? Many thanks. JH

Hi there,

When MT4 starts up, it reads the contents of its experts and experts\indicators folders and populates the list of available EAs and indicators, respectively.

This means that if you are installing an EA or an indicator, you need to make sure you put them in the appropriate folder, and give MT4 a chance to "find" it - by restarting it, or by not running it while you are installing.

When it starts back up, your new stuff should appear in the Navigator and in the Insert-Indicators-Custom menu.

hi Christoph
i downloaded your increase size price but it only show the "sell" price. How do i make it show also the "buy" price too? and how do i mortify it to be above the candlestic rather than beside it?
