Trying to set an alert so when the price is 2 points above or below the moving average I get an alert. I am looking at the ES chart. Having trouble with the formula. In the chart under MA the formula I used is = (lasttrade <> 2.00). But that is not working. Any suggestions?

Try this:


This will alert when the price crosses the MA +/- 8 ticks.

The alert works as intended but curious about alerts in general. If the chart that has the alert is not the one I'm looking at will the alert still sound off?

if the chart isnt currently open in any of your open chartbooks it wont go off.. if you have an alert set on a symbol you need it set on that symbol as well, which is why i really want to see sierra add the quote board alerts they mentioned a few months ago
