OandaX OrderBook Chart MetaTrader 4 Forex Indicator

OandaX OrderBook Chart MetaTrader 4 Forex  indicator is designed to display the history histogram of orders or positions on the instrument, closest to the time specified by user on the chart. For the constant update of data it is necessary for the OandaX Download Manager EA to be running in the terminal.

OandaX OrderBook Chart MetaTrader 4 Forex Indicator

This indicator serves as an example of calling to the data of histogram downloaded by the EA. The histogram scale is linked to the chart scale. So unlike the OandaX OrderBook Image History indicator, the histogram will be drawn not at the user-defined location, but straight on the chat area, for which the data had been downloaded. Time for which the histogram is drawn will be displayed in the upper left corner (using the Comment function).

  • The limit orders include the Buy Limit orders and the Take Profit levels. Stop orders include Sell Limit orders and the Stop Loss levels.
  • Position book or Open Positions. In histogram you can see the distribution of prices, at which the active positions of traders were opened at the time the histogram was formed.


Minimum step of history data is 20 min., but depending on the history depth the step can increase up to 24 hours.

4 display formats available for both (orders and positions) histograms:

  • basic: displays a basic level histogram without further processing
  • simple difference: instead of short and long orders (positions), their difference is displayed
  • cumulative difference: difference for the cumulative histogram
  • cumulative: the values of all the previous levels are added to each level

The data is downloaded and saved by UTC time, but for the correct display of the histogram time, set the correct time zone of your broker server relative to UTC in the indicator settings

Parameters of Indicator:

  • Use Custom Instrument — True, if you have non-standard instrument names or if you need to display a histogram of another instrument on the chart;
