In addition we also show you how to remove an indicator form a chart.
Adding the prefix or suffix to an indicator on the MT4 platform
In this video we explain how to add the prefix or suffix to some of the MT4 Quantum Trading indicators. most mt4 brokers do not use a prefix or suffix in the currency notation, but some brokers do. This is shown either as a prefix, ahead of the currency notation, or as a suffix, where it appears after the currency notation. The prefix or suffix then needs to be added to to the user inputs for the Currency Strength Indicator, the Currency Matrix Indicator, and the currency indices such as the dollar index and the yen index for them to work correctly.
