[User Discussion] - Alert on close of candle after breach of line or price retracement level

I am new to Sierra. So far I love it.

When scalping I use a line or a level of the price retracement tool. I want to be alerted when a candle closes above or below that level. Is this possible with a build in study?

See screenshot for what I mean.

I don't see answer on this request/question.

Yet would like to write exactly the same request.

Would that be possible to add alert option on retracement tool's level?

Great example of this solution is already introduced in OHLC tool, so hope it does not require a lot of coding work from SC Team :)

Thx for info.

There is not a way to setup an alert for a specific level of the Price Retracement tool directly. But you can do it by referencing the anchors and calculating out the level you want.

Refer to the following:
