Setting up an alert with several coding and conditions

I would like to know if it is possible to have one single alert that would trigger only if all the conditions are fully filled, conditions that would be specific in several indicators ?

For example, if I want these 2 conditions to be respected to launch a specific sound alert file:

MACD curve cross signal curve: CROSSOVER(ID13.SG1.ID13.SG2)
CCI curve cross level +100 : =OR(CROSSOVER(SG1,-100),CROSSOVER(SG1,-200),CROSSOVER(SG1,100),CROSSOVER(SG1,200))

Each coding line will be implemented on each indicator, right ?

How do I link them together ?

Thanks !

You will need to use the AND function. Here is the relevant documentation for this:

The formula will need to go either on the CCI or MACD. Formulas can reference other studies. Refer to:

I would like to have a buy trigger (Trade System) based on more than one alert/condition.

I have one set up for a single condition, can you please explain how to add alerts/conditions to the Trade Sysytem?

I am a beginner.

As mentioned above, you need to use the AND() and/or OR() functions. Here is the link to the information for these:
