What is MetaTrader 4 Stock Index Charts Tool Bars?
When you open many stock indices charts on the MetaTrader 4 stock indices software, these stock indices charts are arranged in navigation tabs bar just below the MT4 stock indices chart workspace as shown below.
If on your MetaTrader 4 stock index platform this display bar is not highlighted - as in the example shown above - you can follow the following procedure to show this MetaTrader 4 bar as well as these MetaTrader 4 tabs.
On the “View” menu drop down list option, the fourth button is named “Charts Bar” as shown above. To view this display bar on the MT4 stock index platform just click and check or tick this button and the it will appear as shown below displaying all the open stock indices charts as tabs that a stock indices trader can use to open any of these listed stock indices charts.
Once you tick this option the MetaTrader 4 bar appears and this MT4 bar also has right and left arrows that a stock indices trader can use to scroll to the left or to the right and navigate other open stock indices charts from this MetaTrader 4 bar.
These MT4 stock indices chart tabs are used to organize all the open stock indices charts on the MetaTrader 4 stock index platform in an orderly manner. This MetaTrader 4 tab also gives the stock indices trader easy access to any stock indices chart that they might have opened.
As the stock indices trader continues to open more stock indices charts, this MetaTrader 4 Bar of chart tabs adds navigation arrows to the right and to the left of this MetaTrader 4 bar, this way a stock indices trader can scroll to the left or to the right of this MT4 bar of chart tabs until they find the stock index chart for the stock indices instrument that they want to trade.
For ease of navigation each tab on this MetaTrader 4 bar also shows the stock index chart time frame for which this particular stock indices chart is set for. The last MT4 Tab does not show the stock index chart time frame and a stock indices trader has to use the right and left scroll arrow buttons next to this tab to navigate. Once the stock indices trader reaches one end that arrow is then grayed out - as shown above, the right arrow scroll button above is grayed because the first stock indices chart - stock index trading chart is the first stock indices chart on the right side of this MetaTrader 4 bar.
