Once you have chosen your indicator, you will need to configure it. This will involve setting the parameters for the indicator. These parameters will vary depending on the indicator that you have chosen. For example, if you have chosen a moving average indicator, you will need to set the number of periods that you want the moving average to cover.

Step 5: Apply Your Indicator

Once you have configured your indicator, click on the “Apply” button to apply it to your chart. You should now see your indicator plotted on your chart.
