Metatrader 101: Adding an EA to your Chart
If there is a green arrow next to the “man in a hat” icon then your EA’s are switched on. If there’s a red square then they’re switched off. Clicking this button toggles the EA’s on and off.
2. To add the EA to the chart simply drag and drop it from the Navigator pane on the left-hand side. The EA will first show a dialog box so that you can set it’s inputs. Once you’ve done this you should see a smiley face in the top right-hand corner of the screen which shows that the EA is active and working (see arrow in chart below).

4. Removing an EA: as mentioned in step 3 right click in the chart area and select Expert Advisors | Remove. The smiley face icon will then disappear.
