I am trying to put the following statement in a loop because it appears there a a character limitation on the Alert condition formula.

I want it to loop/calculate 'x' number of times/bars. But not to be confused with just calculating "x numbers of bars ago"

ID21.SG1 > 0,
ID21.SG1 > (IF (ID21.SG1[-1]<0,(ID21.SG1[-1]*-1),ID21.SG1[-1])),
ID21.SG1 > (IF (ID21.SG1[-2]<0,(ID21.SG1[-2]*-1),ID21.SG1[-2])),
ID21.SG1 > (IF (ID21.SG1[-3]<0,(ID21.SG1[-3]*-1),ID21.SG1[-3]))

Any help will greatly be appreciated.

Alerts do not have any support for looping or variables. You would have to create a custom study to have access to those tools. Refer to the following:

I need a small code for custom study that will give an alert in the following condition:

ID1.SG1 > ID1.SG2

If I have such a code, I will develop it myself.
Thank you very much for your kindness
