    Hi Juankit and welcome,

    The mq4 file with "EA" in the name has to be put in the experts/ folder (it is the expert advisor), the two other are the indicators and have to be put in the experts/indicators/ folder.

    Finally the set file is required for the settings, you need to put it in the experts/presets/ folder if you want to test the EA in your demo account. You will have then to load it from the Inputs tab when you drag the expert advisor on a chart in Metatrader. Otherwise you can put it in the tester/ folder to test the EA in the strategy tester.

    You don't need to touch to StrategyTester Taichi DeMarker EA EU M5 opt.zip, it is a zip package with the detailed statement got after some optimization. I suggest you to do your own optimization later.

    I don't know this particular EA, but I would have thought that the 2 Cronex files are indicators which are needed for the EA to work. They should be saved to the experts\indicators folder.

    The Taichi DeMarker EA.mq4 file is the EA itself which should be saved to the experts folder.

    The taichi demarker ea eu m5 opt.set file contains optimum settings and should be saved to the experts\presets folder.

    Close and re-start MT4. This will cause all of the MQ4 files to compile into a code that MetaTrader will be able to read.

    Open a EUR/USD chart and switch to the M5 timeframe.

    Open the Navigator pane either from the icon or by going View>Navigator. In the Expert Advisors folder you will see your EA. Drag and drop it into the chart.

    You will see a Properties box. Click the Inputs tab and press the Load button so that you see the preset file that you previously saved.

    Load it into the chart and click OK and, Hey Presto, you're trading.
