How can I set an alert on buy and sell imbalance indicator? In the main menu on the relevant instance (i.e. no 2) I set alert number 8 and the sound for alert 8. Then directly from the chart also set alert 8 and in from the indicator I chose alert 8 as well. but the alert is not coming. The imbalance areas (buy and sell) are printed on my chart buy I do not receive any alerts. Please see the print screen.

On the Volume at Price Threshold Alert V2 you just need to set the Alert number you want on the Input for Volume Alert Number. You do not need to do anything with the Alert tab itself. Refer to the information here:

Is it possible to ask for a print screen what shall I start with? - I am not sure what you are referring to here: "you just need to set the Alert number you want on the Input for Volume Alert Number"

I am using Buy imbalance and sell imbalance indicators. And I would like the alert to ring...when the imbalance set in the indicator appears in the chart (300 or -300 in my case). Does it mean I should additionally put volume at price indicator and set the buy imbalance threshold? Similar to the sell imbalance?
