How to create a chart template in MetaTrader 4

A template is a set of chart window settings that can be saved and opened later for quick application to other charts.

Some of the parameters that can be saved in a template are chart type, chart color, the attached expert advisor and its parameters, custom or default indicators with their settings, chart scale, and period separators.

To create a template, first load a chart with all your preferred settings, colors, and indicators. After that, you can right-click and navigate to “Templates,” then click on “Save Template” as shown in the picture below.

I'm the DIY Trading Expert.

I used to have a column on a DIY blog for home improvement projects. There were some small problems with people misreading my directions. Furniture collapsed. Plumbing caught fire. Buildings fell over. A few people died in ways my lawyer won't let me talk about.

Now I spend my time figuring out how to do all those things that experts are supposed to know. Then I make simple step-by-step guides to each one.

No one who's followed my advice about how to do things in their FX trading platform has been killed, yet. It's a perfect record and I'm very proud of it.
