Forex Real Time Chart Pattern Recognition

MT4 Expert Advisor Installation for Ramp.

Step 1:

Be sure that MetaTrader 4 is installed on your computer.

MetaTrader is provided as a free Forex real time trading platform by many Forex brokers.  You can generally download and install MetaTrader 4 from your broker.

If you do not have a broker who provides MetaTrader, you can
Click here and open a free demonstration account. These instructions will use this demonstration account, however, any MetaTrader 4 installation will work.

Step 2:
Find the MetaTrader folder on your computer.

Ramp needs the location of your MetaTrader "files" folder.  You will want to locate this folder so that you can set up Ramp for the first time.  You will only need to do this once.  See the image to the right for an example of the file location.  Yours will vary slightly.  The \Files\ folder is shown highlighted in blue.

Step 3:
Be sure that you are running MetaTrader 4 as the administrator. 
Find the application file named "terminal" or "terminal.exe" in the MetaTrader folder as shown in the image below. 

Right click on the file and select "Properties" and then the "Compatibility" tab.  You will see the image to the right.

Check "Run this program as the administrator". 

Click on "Change settings for all users" and then "Apply".

Run as Administrator

Step #4:

Run the Ramp Program and select MetaTrader as your data source.  To do this, click on the "Select a Data Source" pull down under Step1 in Ramp.  Then, select "Free MT4 Real Time FOREX". 


Forext Real Time Chart Pattern Recognition Selection.

A folder navigation window will pop up.

In this window, navigate to your \MQL4\Files\ folder.  In the image shown, you can see the files folder in blue. 

Yours will probably be empty the first time you see it.  It is very important that you click on "Open" even if there are no files shown.

Click on the "Open" button at the bottom of the window.  This tells Ramp exactly where to look for MetaTrader data files.

The MT4 expert advisor file named Export-RT-Historical-Data-for-Ramp.ex4 will be automatically installed in the \MQL4\Indicators\ folder.


Step #5:
Add the "Export-RT-Historical-Data-for-Ramp" indicator to your MetaTrader charts.

Any chart in MetaTrader 4 that has the "Export-RT-Historical-Data-for-Ramp" indicator attached to it will export the streaming real time historical data file to the "\experts\files\" folder.  Ramp will be able to read this data.

To attach the data export indicator to a chart, find "Custom Indicators" in MT4. See the image at the right.  This indicator was added to MetaTrader's custom indicators by Ramp when you showed Ramp where MetaTrader is in step 4 above.  If it does not exist in MetaTrader, be sure you have completed step 4 above.

You can drag and drop this indicator onto any MetaTrader chart.  It will continuously update that chart's data in the MetaTrader files folder where Ramp can read it.

If you add the indicator to your default template in MetaTrader, all charts that you open will automatically export data to .csv files.  Be sure that you open a chart with the  indicator in it for each currency pair and timeframe you want to use.  In Ramp, be sure that you ask for the same currency pair and time frame.  The symbols have to match up exactly.

MT4 Indicators Selection Image Expert Advisor Location in the MetaTrader Folder 

MetaTrader exports data to its own "files" folder. Ramp and other programs can read the files from that folder.  Ramp is a stand alone application and does not run within the MetaTrader program.  Only the MT4 expert advisor indicator runs within MetaTrader.  As long as you have the indicator attached to an open chart, that chart is feeding data to the files folder where any program can read it.  In the Ramp Program, don't forget to request the same currency pair symbols and time frames you are exporting with MetaTrader 4.  Both programs must be running and the same symbols must be referenced by both programs.
