This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Trendbar Alerts

If I have enabled an alert on a trendline in my chart and the chart is not open, will TS still notify me of the alert or is it only applicable if the chart is open? If it does not work when the chart is not open then is there any workaround so that I can monitor for trendline intrabar breakouts or what not in radarscreen?

to my knowledge TS can't monitor closed charts or workspaces for alerts. I guess you could monitor the breakouts in Radarscreen, but the trick will be to "get" the trendlines into the radar indicator. For horizontal lines you could just input the prices into the Radarscreen indicator, but if you have trendlines with a slope that you drew manually you'd need to send them from the chart to the indicator using something like ELC or Global Dictionary.
