Abiroid Scanner Dashboard Common Settings

This post describes Common settings for all Abiroid Scanner Dashboards.

These are available on Metatrader’s mql5.com Market.

A scanner Dashboard indicator will scan multiple Pairs for Multiple Timeframes and it will show results for all.

Based on these results, user can go to individual charts by clicking on Dash buttons and trade. Scanner makes it easier to have all information available in a single chart.

Unique Prefix:

Make sure to have a unique Prefix. Because it is used to draw scanner components on chart. Unique Prefix will avoid conflicts with any other indicators on the same chart.

Pairs/Timeframes Settings:

Main Pairs Preset:

Contains several presets for Forex Pairs like:














Main Pair List:

If you want to use your own pair list or other things that your broker provides like stocks, BTC, etc, then specify Own Pair List in drop-down and give a comma separated pair list for “Main Pair List”.


Comma-separated list of timeframes. Possible values: M1,M5,M15,M30,H1,H4,D1,W1,MN1


Size of Dashboard font. Also changes the overall size of the dashboard. Recommended fontSize is 8. But to have smaller dash, set to 6. Anything less than 6 might be too small.


Number of columns of Dashboard. Set to 2 if you want dashboard to have smaller height so it doesn’t overlap with the chart below.

If Chart is above dashboard and you want it to go under, press F8 or right-click chart and select Properties -> Common and uncheck “Chart on Foreground”
