    We can simply analyze the trend and get the exact entry to trade by looking this picture..
    But in reality it will not work.. Trust me it will REPAINT .. i tried this indicator ..
    If we opened any position and if the price moves and if its break BM || TP lines. then the Bottom and Top lines will stretch out..

    Hi Ronald, does this indicator repaint ? Because the original COG from Benkyalate does repaint, which makes it impossible to verify if passed prices crossed the upper and lower lines.

    Just put the MQ4 files (indicators) in the MT4 indicators folder and the tpl file (template) in the templates folder. Method 1: put them in the indicators and templates folder where you've installed MT4 (in windows it's under C: program files/metatrader 4 or something like this.
    Method 2: the latest builds of MT4 use a different approach to install indicators and templates: go to the file menu in your MT4 and choose 'open data folder', then either 'drag' the files from your windows explorer window to the mt4 data window (make both the mt4 data window and your windows explorer window smaller, so you can see two windows on your screen), or copy the indicator files and paste them into the indicators folder of mt4 (do the same for pasting the template file into the templates folder - you might have to put the template file into the MT4 folder on C: program files/metatrader 4 too, when it's not visible in your MT4).
    If you still have problems, Google for 'installing indicators in MT4' or ask your question(s) at the 'Forex Factory' forum. Cheers
