Yes, you can use any custom indicators that are MQL compatible. Failing to download a custom indicator can occur as a result of coding issues on the side of the indicator creator.
There is no restriction to the number of EAs and indicators you can have running at any one time on MetaTrader 4. That said, it is important to understand that MetaTrader 4 is a RAM sensitive program. Overloading your platform with a large number of EAs and indicators can reduce the performance and speed of your MT4 platform. Also, EAs may have conflicting strategies and risk profiles and can comprise each other when attached to one single trading account. Therefore, it is recommended to split your EAs across multiple trading accounts and platforms.

In order to be in line with Orbex trading conditions, we encourage you to visit and read carefully our trading conditions page.
Here you will find important information concerning news trading, hedging, scalping, storage fees, leverage, margin requirements and more.
A "pip" is the smallest whole increment in any Forex pair. For pairs quoted in 5 decimal points, a pip increment is based on the fourth decimal. For pairs quoted in 3 decimal points, a pip increment is based on the second decimal. The value of a pip is determined by the currency of your account and the pair you are trading. If the quote currency is the same as your account currency, then a 1 pip move equals 10 account currency units per 100,000 traded.
The spread is the difference between the bid price (selling price) and the ask price (buying price).
To view the different spreads, we offer for each account type and instrument; please visit theOrbex Spreads page.
The leverage of your account is the multiplier of your purchasing power that determines the amount of margin required for every trade. The higher the leverage, the more purchasing power you have.
The Client shall provide and maintain the Initial Margin within such limits as the Company, at its sole discretion, may determine, set, or update. The Company has no obligation to make Margin Calls for the Client. For more information on Margin Requirements, please visit our Trading Conditions page (under heading Margin Requirements).
The possible choice of a leverage rate ranges from 1:1 up to 1:500. Upon opening an account, a client is provided with a default leverage corresponding with his account type and total volume. The Client may change the leverage of his account, if applicable, by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The leverage may change automatically if the equity goes above a certain threshold. For more information on Leverage, please visit our Trading Conditions page (under heading Leverage).
Forex Lot is basically a representation of Trade Size.
Standard: 1.0 lot is 100,000 units of the base currency
Mini: 0.1 lot is 10,000 units of the base currency
Micro: 0.01 lot is 1,000 units of the base currency (this is the minimum lot size)
The Base currency is the first currency in the currency pair. So essentially:
10 Mini Lots make 1 Standard Lot
10 Micro Lots make 1 Mini Lot
100 Micro Lot = 10 Mini Lot = 1 Standard Lot
