Hi

Not being lazy I promise, I have been looking at all postss and checked the Alert support page and tried a few things but cannot get what I want to happen; happen.

I want a very simple alert

I want an alert when the BollingerBands: Bandwidth is below say 0.10% obviously I have the scale set to percentage

Can you help?

Your alert condition should read as follows: =ID1.SG1 < .001. Even though you have the data displayed as percentages, the alerts are still looking at the underlying data, so you need to convert the percentage to direct decimal value, hence the .001 instead of .1.

You will find the documentation for alert formulas here:

Thank you works perfectly. May I ask another question relating to the same indicator. Is there a tool that I can use to track the max and min reading of the indicator say over a 125 period. So basically dynamic bands at the high and low across the period.

The closest that is available is this study:

You can modify that study to meet your requirements:

Sierra actually has a good study that does what I need it to do

Highest High/Lowest Low over N period. Exactly what I was after
