Custom Support And Resistance Indicator For MT4 Forex

Updated on August 17, 2016

Please click on picture to see full size

Why use support and Resistance In Forex ?

Support and Resistance, I find to be the most reliable future prediction in the market place. Price tends to gravitate towards previous highs and previous lows. It offers a good area to watch for breaks and pull backs to create an entry. Similar to trend lines, price usually has a a difficult time penetrating these levels. Take a look at the picture to let your mind wrap around how price reacts to previous tops and bottoms/ highs and lows.  

MT4 Code for THE BEST Support and Resistance Indicator in Forex

To implement this indicator into your trading platform, I have provided the code below:

For those that need instructions:
1.Open up MetaEditor through the MT4 terminal
2.Click on "File" ---> New
3.Choose Customer Indicator
4. Click "Next"
5. Put in desired indicator name
6. Click "Next"
7. DO NOT select "Indicator in separate window"
8. Click "Finish"
9. Delete the generic code
10.Copy the code below
11. Paste the code
12. Compile it to make sure it has not errors/warning
13. Should be zero errors/warning
14. Save
15. Restart MT4 terminal ---> You should now have your new indicator under the custom indicator heading and able to attach it to any chart.

      Hey Thank you!! This is exactly what I was looking for. BTW, do you have any more indicators (like this) that you use? I saw and downloaded the MT4 HMA indicator and the Pivot point indicators from your website www.kaizen.devhub.com So far they are working great on the charts!
