Draw Grid Indicator for MT4

Draw Grid Indicator is a very cool tool that will help you drawing a grid in your MetaTrader 4 chart.

Although Grid systems are quite popular, MetaTrader 4 does not offer a function to create a grid with set intervals so I created it for you.

Grid Systems

As a trader you probably read about Grid Systems. They are popular in the Forex Market but I don’t want to go too much into details into this article. I still want to introduce them in case you don’t know them at all.

Grid systems usually involve drawing a grid of horizontal lines representing Buy and Sell levels.

All the levels are placed at the same pip distance between each other and Money Management has a key role to manage the risk.

Grid Systems are also commonly used together with Round Numbers, usually multiple of 50-100 pips.

What is Draw Grid Indicator for MT4

Draw Grid is a simple indicator developed for MetaTrader 4 that allows you to create a grid of horizontal lines in the chart.

The Grid Indicator doesn’t trade itself as it is not an Expert Advisor, however, it can be useful to perform chart and price analysis.

Often once you draw a grid you can see how levels of support and resistance are very close to the levels you set.

In other cases you can look for these levels drawing grids of different distances.

If, for example, you draw a grid using as a leg (or step) of 50-100 pips you will see how these levels are like magnet with the price, usually representing support and resistance levels.

You can play with the pip distance or leg and study the results.

  1. Hi,
    I like your Draw Grid Indicator very much, but I can only get solid lines as main lines. When I choose dot or dash I also only get solid lines.

    Are there a bug?

    Best regards

    • Hi Jens,
      I know what you mean, it’s not a bug, it is a limitation of Metatrader. If you want to change the style of the main grid you need to change the thickness of the line to one. If the thickness is higher than 1 then Metatrader automatically draws a SOLID style line. If you change the style of the main grid I would also suggest to disable the secondary grid or you will have overlapped grids.
      Hope it makes sense.

  2. Hi Luca,

    Its very good and i like it. Anyway, Im actually searching for a grid indicator that automatically calculate the range of the grid. Is it available ?

    Thank you.

    • Hi Awinson,
      For range you mean the high and low extreme?
      A way to do that is to have a parameters like “Candles to scan” and the indicator will find the max and low in these recent candles.
      Is that what you were looking for?
