Audible Alerts for Key Levels on Multiple Symbols
This video demonstrates how to setup audible alerts (and logging) for
price approaching key levels such as the previous day session high or
A Signal Marker is probably the way to go for you here.
Here's what you would do. Let's assume you want signal when CCI crosses
above 100 for instance. You would create a signal (Setup: Signal) with
CCI > 100 AND CCI.1 <= 100
And save this signal. Then, add the Signal Marker indicator to your
chart, select this signal that you've just saved. You have a great deal
of flexibility here regarding the "actions" that are taken when the
indicator crosses above this level. If you wanted to signal every time
it crossed in either direction....
(CCI > 100 AND CCI.1 <= 100) OR (CCI < 100 AND CCI.1 >= 100)
If you wanted to look for price crossing a certain level...
(CL > 100 AND CL.1 <= 100) OR (CL < 100 AND CL.1 >= 100)
For price crossing above an MA:
CL > MA AND CL.1 < MA.1
For one MA crossing above another..
MA_A > MA_B AND MA_A.1 <= MA_B.1
If you preferred to search a whole
list of symbols at once for these conditions, the you'll need to use a
Scan. The Scan could use the same syntax suggested above for
Signals. Actually, there is a checkbox in the Signal setup window
to "Enable this Signal for use as a Scan". Scans have two
important settings in addition to Signals. They have an option for
periodicity, and an option for the quotepage (group of symbols) on
which the scan is to run. Once the scans have been created, they
can be scheduled to run periodically. For more information on
