Hi Enivid,
Thanks for the indicator!

I am using MT4 - Does the indicator repaint at all?

I looked back on a h1 chart and put vertical lines at the end of the drawn channels and saved it as a template. I then loaded the template into strategy tester and ran through the past month. I found that the channels were drawn in different areas in strategy tester.

Does this mean I can't replicate live channel drawing by the indicator in strategy tester, or do a simple visual back test?

How did you test it in the MT4 strategy tester?

It should not repaint, but it may show different results based on: input parameters, number of bars in the chart, number of channels it will paint (it will remove old channels if you re-init it on the chart).

What is a "can't open" message? Could you please provide more details on the problem you encounter with this indicator? Attaching a screenshot and letting us know your trading platform's version would help.

Did you copy iChartPatternDetector.mqh file to the same folder as ChartPatternDetector.mq4? Both should be in /MQL4/Indicators/ of your platform's data folder.
Do not have iChartPatternDetector.mqh file. Where do I find that? Appreciate the assistance.
