Have All timeframes on One Single Chart in Your MetaTrader Platform (MT4)

If you are among the trader who like to check all the timeframes before taking your position according to your favorite timeframe, you may have some space problems. You need to have several monitors or laptops or you have to change the timeframe of your chart all the time and check the situation of the other times frames and then get back to the main timeframe that you always use to take your position.

Even if you trade just using one timeframe, it is good to know about the situation of at least one or two bigger timeframes. For example if you trade using the one hour chart, you’d better to know about the 4 hours and daily charts. You can also check one smaller timeframe too. This is a big help to know if you are trading against the bigger or smaller timeframes and you can close your position and take your profit on time. Trading against bigger timeframes can be risky. You can do that but you have to be careful and move your stop loss when you are in profit. If it goes against you have to get out before you lose a lot.

Now... before you read the rest of this article, make sure to check This System.

As I said checking several timeframes need several monitors or changing the timeframe of you chart in case you have only one monitor. But I have a good tool for you that lets you know about the situation of all bigger timeframes without making any space problem.

By copying few files to your MetaTrader indicators and template folders you can easily see the situation of 4 to 8 timeframes on one chart and through one monitor without having any space problem.

Place the below files in the indicators folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\ABC MetaTrader\experts\indicators\):


1. To save the files on your computer hard disk, just right click on the below links and click on “Save target as …” and then “Save”. Do not change the files name.
2. If after pasting the indicators to your platform, you can not see the charts in the way the below screenshots show, you need to copy the Heikin Ashi and Smoothed Heikin Ashi to your indicators folder and restart your platform.

1- https://www.luckscout.com/downloads/MTF HAS Bar Lower A.ex4
2- https://www.luckscout.com/downloads/MTF HAS Bar Lower B.ex4
3- https://www.luckscout.com/downloads/MTF HAS Bar Upper A.ex4
4- https://www.luckscout.com/downloads/MTF HAS Bar Upper B.ex4

Then put the below file in the templates folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\ABC MetaTrader\templates\):

1- https://www.luckscout.com/downloads/4 timeframes.tpl
2- https://www.luckscout.com/downloads/8 timeframes.tpl

Now close your MetaTrader and restart it. Open a new chart and right click on it. Go to “Template” and choose “4 timeframes”. You will have the below chart then:

Whatever timeframe that you choose for your chart, the bottom bars show three bigger timeframes. So if you choose one minute, you will have 1, 5, 15 and 30 minutes timeframes at the bottom indicator window. When the small bars are blue, the related timeframe is Bullish and when they are red, it is Bearish. On the price window we have both candlesticks and Smoothed Heikin Ashi.

If you choose the “8 timeframes” as the template, you will have 8 timeframes on your chart:

As you see on the above chart, one minute and also 5, 15, 30 and 60 minutes charts are all Bullish but 4 hours, daily and weekly charts are Bearish. So if you trade according to the one hour chart, you should be aware that you are trading against the 4 hours, daily and weekly chart and it can go against you at any time.

Play with this tool and check different timeframes and back data and see if it can be any of help in your trades. Hope you like it.

  5. Alejandro O, Bastida says:

    it seems complicated, but I should have to follow in order i can familiar or well-versed of those explanations from you, but the problem I am a very slow learner….

  6. Don says:

    Great indicator, however when I load the upper A and B i get 4TF-HAS(43200,43200,43200,43200) instead of 1,5,15,1.

    The lower is fine and shows the correct times of 60,240,1440,10080.

    Do I have a glitch or am doing something wrong?

  7. Don says:

    never mind, i see I have to be down in those time frames, got it. thanks

  8. Adrian says:

    Hi, the multiple time frame template doesn’t seem to work when selected on the chart, is there something that needs to be done to activate it?

    • Chris says:

      Hi Adrian. Maybe you have not installed it properly. Do it from the scratch. I know that some traders are using it without any problems.

  9. Omar says:

    Wow , really it is very good tool , It forces you to see the upper frame either you like or forget . so it is very helpful (my opinion)

  10. Temmy says:

    Is it profitable?

  11. Temmy says:

    I’ve tried saving ex4 files and the templates and they don’t seem to work I’m sure I’m doing something wrong. Could you please point me to the right direction! Thanks for your response and the link!

    • Chris says:

      Maybe they are not saved in the right folder. Some versions of windows have a virtual folder for the software like MT4. Probably you have to save the files in that folder too.

  12. Temmy says:

    My laptop has windows 8. And when I try to save it it says choose app from PC. Which app would you suggest please??

  13. Temmy says:

    Did you save them directly to metatrader or winrar?

    • Chris says:

      Somewhere like this:
      C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\EF32FF066B808070B404CE0064414E5D\MQL4\Experts

      It has nothing to do with winrar.

  14. Temmy says:

    thanks I’ll give it a try

  15. Temmy says:

    I installed it the way you mentioned above. And after loading still can’t see anything. What could I be doing wrong

    • Chris says:

      Hi Temmy,

      I really don’t know, because I don’t see your computer. The only thing that can create such a problem is that you have not installed the files in the right folder.

  16. Marty says:

    Hi, do you have info on how to copy this to the latest MT4 platform, I cannot seem to get it to work

    • Chris says:

      Operating systems like Windows 7 have virtual folders for a software like MT4. You have to install the files in those folders.

  17. Raji says:

    Chris, please confirm if meta trader 4 android app may be used to trade effectively and profitably using the trading system so far learnt from your most educative site.

    • Chris says:

      Hi Raji,

      If you can see the charts properly, then why not?

      Unless the screen is too small, or too wide that deforms the charts and candlesticks.

  18. Jim says:

    What criteria are you using to say a different time frame is bullish or bearish? And can it be changed?

  19. Johanim says:

    Sir how shold I change back to normal mt4

  22. Stefano says:

  23. Bob Harding says:

    Aloha Chris,

    Is it possible to have and use only the The Bars, time frame indicators and Not install the templates?

    I do not want to have my charts that way.

    Thank you a lot!

  25. Ashish Thakrar says:

    Hello..this indicator is not loading now on my terminal…please help me..i m trading this system

  26. Fiber Gu says:

    Really great multi time frame indicator. Thank you.
    Wanted to ask is it possible to add alert function? I think would be best option to have 3 level alert: when two lower lines turned into same color, then when three lines from the bottom turned into same level and finally when all four lines turned into same color.

  27. Robert Cruz says:

    is there a TOS version of this ??
