Alerts

Postby iso » 02 Mar 2009

Hello,

How do I set a price alert using the scanner. I want to be alerted when price reaches a certain level.

Thanks

Hi iso,

Setting the price alert in a scanner window works in exactly the same way as it would on a chart. You need to apply your custom study that will have conditions for triggering the alert (a particular price level) and then you would need to go to Format Study -> Alerts -> Enable Alerts.

Regards.

I don't have a custom study. I just want to set an alert for when price gets to a specific price. How would I do that?

Thanks

you can create this study to enable an alert:

Code: Select all

input:
alert.price(100); {<-- input your alert price here}

if close cross above alert.price
or close cross below alert.price
then
alert("Alert Price="+text(alert.price));



For further programming help,
please see 1st post in this thread:

Thanks but i'm not looking for an indicator. I need to be able to set alerts on the stocks that I follow, 100 or so. I just need to be able to set a simple alert for when a stock get to a certain price. The only way I can see to do this is by setting an alert on a trend line but when I move to a new symbol the alert will not fire.

I thought you want it on a scanner.
