You need to choose which symbol from GDAX to display, from the drop-down list of options, to match the chart in MT4.
You can choose the colour for the display of the GDAX spread, and whether to show ask and bid lines or a filled rectangle.
GDAX has charges for placing market orders, which widen the effective spread (e.g. https://www.gdax.com/fees/BTC-USD)
You can include these in the display by entering a value such as 0.25 for the spread-widening. This will lower the bid price and raise the ask price by that percentage.
You can choose to display the MT4/5 spread as a filled rectangle, for easier comparison against the GDAX spread. If you turn this off, then you can instead use the chart settings in MT4/5 to display a line for the ask price as well as the bid price.
