Hello Tims,

The error message you received is valid. FSB does not recognize .mq4 files, it uses files written in C# language. Therefore your files cannot be used directly in FSB. If your mq indicators involve adjusting stop losses, take profit levels, then most likely those indicators cannot be adapted for use in FSB, because Stop Loss and Stop Limit indicators cannot be customized. That's all I can say for now.

Thank you for the kind response but I dont understand why you say " If your mq indicators involve adjusting stop losses, take profit levels, then most likely those indicators cannot be adapted for use in FSB, because Stop Loss and Stop Limit indicators cannot be customized."   Your ATR trailing stop indicator doesnt involve adjusting stop losses?I will be pleased if you can answer in simple because I dont know coding.Thank you and green pips to you Good Sir.
