Now click on tool you want to download and Download button will be shown. After tool is downloaded, you will see it in your MT4 Navigator window under Expert Advisors. Now you can drag this tool to your chart and start using it.


Second option:

You can also download tool directly from MQL5 website, but you need to be logged in as user. Click Download and you will be asked to open MT4 and download tool.
