Tick alert...

Hi,

I was wondering if a tick alert is available? For example on a 1 minute NYSE tick chart, if a bar moves to a negative 800 level or a positive 1000 level, if an alert could be set up and triggered. I've went through the tick and alert documentation and had no luck finding anything.

Thanks...

Add two Color Bar Based on Alert studies, or any study that uses alerts, and add these to the studies' Alert Conditions:

=CROSSFROMBELOW(C,1000)

=CROSSFROMABOVE(C,-800)

You can hide the study if you don't want to see the color bar and the alert will still work.

Hi,

The positive 1000 and negative 800 tick readings for the NYSE are extreme readings and seldom hit. Maybe a couple times a day. I wasn't able to get anything to work with those parameters but then reduced the parameters to +/-400 and it worked, but I believe the "C" in the alert conditions is for the close, in other words closing > +400 or < -400. That close will almost never happen at the +1000 or -800 parameters. Is it possible to set it up to only "touch" or "hit" these levels instead of needing to close beyond them? I looked but couldn't find anything in the documentation on this topic. If there is a page in the documentation with this info please include that also...

Thanks

The "C" or Close is the Last price, and it will change while the bar is forming. So if you leave the box "signal only once per bar" and "evaluate on bar closed" unchecked, then it will fire as many times as it crosses the level during the bar. You can set the TICK-NYSE to 1 minute, 5 min or whatever period and it will work the same.

Use this formula:
=OR( H>= 400, L <= -400)

Hi, when I use this alert formula, it colors every single bar where the expected action is only to color the bars that meet the criteria. Is my expectation false or is there a problem that needs troubleshooting here?
