    MT4 navigational tips and techniques

    Hi all
    The following post used to be a sticky in
    the MetaTrader forum, but it appears to
    have been lost. Hence I'm re-posting it
    here.
    Use of the mouse and mousewheel,
    and their keyboard equivalents
    Scrolling the chart
    Hold down the left mouse button and drag
    the mouse in the main chart area, to scroll
    left/right.
    Or you can also simply roll the
    mousewheel down/up, or use the left/right
    arrow keys, to likewise scroll the chart
    view left/right.
    To scroll a whole screen at a time, use
    Page Up (scroll left) and Page Down
    (scroll right).
    To reposition to the leftmost bar on the
    chart, press Home.To reposition to the
    most recent (rightmost) bar, press End.
    To step forward one bar at a time, press
    F12.
    To step backward one bar at a time, press
    Shift-F12.
    Scrolling a chart beyond the leftmost bar
    will add historical bars to the beginning of
    the chart, until no more are available from
    MT4's historical database.

    Moving directly to a certain date/
    time
    To re-position immediately to a
    certain
    date, press Enter, then type in the
    date in
    the form DD.MM.YY and press
    Enter again.
    Leading zeros can be omitted (e.g.
    to move
    to 4 July 2005, type 4.7.5). To re-
    position
    to a certain date/time, use the
    format
    HH:MM or DD.MM.YY HH:MM (e.g.
    to
    position to 8:07am TODAY on a 1-
    min
    chart, simply type 8:7).

    Vertical zoom and re-scale.
    You can re-scale the chart
    vertically by
    moving the mouse into the
    vertical axis
    area at the right of the screen,
    and then
    dragging downwards (with the left
    button
    held down) to compress the chart
    bars, or
    dragging upwards to expand
    them.
    Double click to reset the chart to
    its
    original scale.

    Horizontal zoom and re-scale.
    Similarly, you can adjust the
    width of the
    price bars by moving the mouse
    into the
    horizontal axis area at the bottom
    of the
    screen, and then dragging right
    (zoom in)
    or left (zoom out). Or simply use
    the "+"
    and "–" keys to achieve this.

    Double-click on or near indicators
    with the
    left mouse button, to call their
    parameter
    setup windows.
    Right-click to call the indicator's
    context
    menu.
    If the screen is cluttered with
    overlapping
    indicators and/or objects, making
    it too
    difficult to select the desired
    indicator,
    press Ctrl-I to call up the
    Indicators dialog
    window.

    Double click (or click the Edit
    button, or Alt-E) on the indicator
    to edit
    its properties (parameters, colors,
    etc), or
    click the Delete button (or Alt-D)
    to
    remove it from the chart.
    You can use the Home, End and
    Page/
    arrow Up/Down keys to navigate
    up/
    down the list.

    Double-click on or near an object
    (line
    studies, texts, arrows, geometric
    shapes) to
    select the object. Once selected,
    you can
    move an object by left clicking on
    it (or in
    the case of or trendline or shape,
    it's
    center handle) and dragging it to
    the
    desired destination.

    Shapes, trendlines,
    channels etc may be extended by
    dragging
    the handles on the relevant edges.
    The
    number "X/Y" appears, where "X"
    = the
    width of the shape in candles, and
    "Y" =
    the height of the shape in pips.

    Right-click on a selected object to
    open its
    context menu.
    If the screen is cluttered with
    overlapping
    indicators and/or objects, making
    it too
    difficult to select the desired
    object(s),
    press Ctrl-B to call up the Objects
    dialog
    window. Left click the check
    boxes on/off
    to select/deselect relevant object
    (s).

    Double click (or click the Edit
    button, or
    Alt-E) on an object to edit its
    properties
    (parameters, colors, etc), or click
    the
    Delete button (or Alt-D) to
    remove it from
    the chart. To quickly delete a
    whole block
    of objects, repeatedly press Alt-D
    or hold
    it down (careful, they disappear
    rather
    quickly!)

    You can use the Home, End and Page/
    arrow Up/Down keys to navigate up/
    down the list.
    Click on the 'Name' or 'Description'
    heading area to sort by name, or
    description, respectively.
    Left-click to select an item. You can use
    Ctrl-click to add individual items to a
    selection, Shift-click to add a group of
    consecutive items, or press Ctrl-A to
    select all items. Then click the Edit button
    (or press Alt-E) to edit all items in the
    group consecutively, or the Delete button
    (or press Alt-D) to delete all selected items
    simultaneously (careful!).

    You can get easly one by typing "MetaTrader 4" on YouTube.
    It'll show you a lot of video and most of them are really good, those videos will explain you how to trade with the MT4.

    ---------- Post added at 12:07 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:05 AM ----------

    I will suggest you something though I am not very expert in trading but I think if you want to learn by yourself then try everything in it in your demo account you will lean many things while if you want to learn like pro search in Google and YouTube for Forex tutorials. Beside deal with pro traders and always try to read all the posts in MT5 forum for around three to four months. Then I think you will learn everything.

    Thank you for your sharing. Althought alot of people use MT4 but not everyone know how to use it as you presented. So I think your post is useful, at least for me.
    Look foward to your next posts.

    MT4 is designed to be used as a stand alone system with the broker manually managing their position and this is a common configuration used by brokers. However a number of third party developers have written software bridges enabling integration with other financial trading systems for automatic hedging of positions

    Great info for every trader who use Metatrader for his trades. In order to trade comfortably trader has to be experienced user of Metatrader. When trading he do not have to have doubts about "how to do". Only trading has to be in his attention.

    my last trading only use 2 indicator : pivot point and volume indicator, I think I need more indicator to have more information about the price movement. the both indicators is the accurate indicator I guess.
