Installing a Metatrader 4 Template file

Metatrader 4 has a handy templating system that allows you to save the view of your charts. For example, say you would like to create a view for long term trading and a different view with different indicators or short term trading. All you have to do is save each view in your templates folder for later retrieval.

Installing a template from a new folder:

Download the new folder to your computer.

Open this new folder.

Select the included template file or files (filename.tpl) and Copy.

Paste the template file into your existing Metatrader 4 platform templates folder.

Your Metatrader 4 folder is located here -> From the Top Menu of Metatrader Platform, click on File -> Open Data Folder

 

A folder will open up, you want to go into Templates folder.

 

Paste your new templates in this templates folder.

Close your Metatrader Platform if it is open.

Open your Metatrader Platform again to refresh new settings.

 

Add the New Template to the Chart

Right Click on the Price Chart and Select the Template Menu Item -> Navigate the drop down menu with the template name you would like to install on chart

or Navigate by clicking from the Top Menu on Metatrader – Charts -> Template -> Navigate the drop down menu with the template name you would like to install on chart

You can also use Template -> Load -> choose your template

 

Save a New Template for later

Once you create a chart setup or chart view that you like you can easily save that chart view in your templates folder. After you save it, every time you apply it to a new chart, it will look just like the one you saved.

Right Click on the Price Chart and Select the Template Menu Item -> Navigate the drop down menu to Save Template and add new name
