1. You should specify the spread in the settings for the indicator to start working.
2. The indicator is made for 4 decimal platform. If you have 2 pips spread for EURUSD with your broker, you set Spread = 2.

How to use 4xSpread.ex4 indicator
The usage is straight forward:
– the broker promised you to certain spreads for each currency pair. You can now input that promised number as your base Spread, and the indicator will tell you when the spread is high to trade (red) and when it’s good to trade (green).
The spread = 2 pips. (You see “20” because the charts we use are 5 decimal charts)
The spread = 2.6 pips. (It’s higher than we wanted).
The indicator is very useful for watching current spreads. During the trading news announcements, if you come to trade uninformed and unprepared, you can pay a high price of up to 15-25 pips for opening a trade at the wrong minute.
