# How To Hack Metatrader To Create The Ultimate Risk:Reward Ratio Tool

#### How To Hack Metatrader To Create The Ultimate Risk:Reward Ratio Tool

Be aware that if you change the settings of the Fibonacci tool, it will not show you the actual Fibonacci levels anymore and you have to change the parameters again before you can use the Fibonacci levels!

### Step 1: Where is the Fibonacci tool?

When you open your Metatrader platform, you find the Fibonacci tool in the menu bar at the top. If you cannot see it go to Insert > Fibonacci  > Retracements

### Step 2: Reset the Fibonacci tool

After you have selected the Fibonacci retracements, drag it to the current chart. For now you do not have to worry where to put it, this just serves the purpose to turn the Fibonacci retracements into a risk:reward ratio tool. After you put the Fibonacci on your chart, a window like the one below will open. In the first step, you have to select each item on the left (0 – 0.0 | 0.236 – 23.6 |…) and delete every item from the list until the window is empty.

### Step 3: Add the risk:reward ratio parameters

After you have deleted all previous entries, you are ready to enter the new values for the risk:reward ratio display. We provide you with sample data you can use the following:

### Description

0  Stop Loss – %\$
0.5 -0.5 RRR – %\$
1 Entry – \$%
1.5 0.5 RRR – %\$
2 1 RRR – %\$
2.5 1.5 RRR – %\$
3 2 RRR – %\$
3.5 2.5 RRR – %\$
4 3 RRR – %\$

The values you enter on the left under “Level” define the distance. For example, the level of 0 defines the place of your Stop Loss. The value “Level” 1 is the place of your entry. The Fibonacci toll will then use the distance between your Stop loss order and your Entry to calculate the other risk:reward levels.

The values you enter on the right under “Description” is going to be the text you see on your charts with the riskr:reward levels. The code “%\$” means that Metatrader will show the actual price next to the risk:reward ratio level.

### Step 4: See the risk:reward ratio tool in action

You are done and are ready to use the risk:reward ratio tool on your charts. First, click the Fibonacci Retracement icon again to select the tool. Then go over to your chart and click on your entry (or potential entry), hold the mouse and drag the tool to the place of your Stop Loss order and release it. Done! You can now see the different risk:reward ratio levels on your charts.

### Change back to Fibonacci levels

If you want to change back to your Fibonacci levels, delete all the risk:reward ratio levels as done in step 2 and add the actual Fibonacci levels similar to step 3, but use the following parameters.

 Level Description 0 0.0 -%\$ 0.146 14.6 -%\$ 0.236 23.6 -%\$ 0.382 38.2 -%\$ 0.5 50.0 -%\$ 0.618 61.8 -%\$ 0.786 78.6 -%\$ 0.942 94.2 -%\$ 1.0 100 -%\$

thank you,that very nice tools =D

This works very well but is there a way to save this setting as a separate tool and also keep the standard Fibonacci retacement levels without having to change the levels from one to another every time?

I switched to Tradingview and there you have both 🙂

Thanks, you are actually right.
