Download the signal/strategy

The signal/strategy is usually attached to the post as a file.

Right click on the name of the attached file and then choose "Save Target As" in the context menu.

The "Save As" dialog appears. Choose any folder, for example c:\ to save the
signal/strategy. The name of the signal or strategy file (EMA_LAG_CCI.lua in our example) will appear in the dialog automatically.

Click the "Save" button. That's all, the signal/strategy is saved.

Note: Sometimes, the signal/strategy requires the custom indicators. In that case these indicators are listed in the post. Please do not forget to download and install the custom indicators!

Install the signal/strategy

Open Marketscope application. Choose the "Alerts and Trading Automation" menu and then choose "Import Strategies and Alerts".

SuperTrend is an indicator, is not a signal. So, you must use Chart->Manager Custom Indicator instead of Signal->Manage Custom Signals.

All lua indicators and signals published on this site are not for Metatrader.
These indicators and signal are for Marketscope. This is the charting application distributed together with the FXCM (dbFX) Trading Station Application.
So, in short none of the indicators and signals will work for Metatrader.

To get metatrader and indicator signals you should use the metatrader codebase's, for example http://codebase.mql4.com.
