In MetaTrader 4, go to the "Market Watch" window, right-click, and select "Show All." This will display all the available instruments. Right-click within the "Market Watch" window and choose "Symbols" to open the symbol list. From there, you can select the instruments you want to add and click on "Show" or "Hide."

To place a trade, locate the "Trade" tab at the bottom of the platform or go to "View" > "Terminal" to open the "Trade" tab. Right-click on the instrument you want to trade in the "Market Watch" window and select "New Order." Set your desired trade parameters, such as volume, stop loss, take profit levels, and click on "Buy" or "Sell" to execute the trade. How do I use indicators and technical analysis tools in MetaTrader 4?

MT4 offers a wide range of built-in indicators and drawing tools. To add an indicator, go to the "Insert" menu at the top of the platform and select "Indicators" or "Objects." Choose the desired indicator or tool, set its parameters, and it will appear on your chart.

EAs are automated trading programs that can execute trades based on predefined strategies. To use an EA, you need to have the .ex4 or .mq4 file of the EA. In MT4, go to "File" > "Open Data Folder" > "MQL4" > "Experts" and copy the EA file to this folder. Then, restart MT4, and the EA will appear in the "Navigator" window. Drag and drop the EA onto the desired chart to activate it.
