I use the attached cycle identifier alert that Saroj got from the main Ninja forum and modified slightly.

There are major cycle turn identification markers and minor cycle turn identification markers.. I only care about the major cycle turn identification markers.

This indicator is most useful when you get a major cycle identifier marker plotting.. Those markets usually lead to a pullback which creates the opportunity for a good reversal trade (or a countertrend scalp).

Can someone look at the code and show me how to add an audio alert function so I can get an audio alert when a major cycle turn marker plots.

Thanks so much,

Todd

sorry i thought she was saying she fixed it but i was wrong she just modified my changes,no harm none done i was just reading the post to quickly and missread...sharky

Todd, Here's my version. Same indicator. Just added the ability to play GO LONG / GO SHORT sound files. I've uploaded the .zip file of the indicator & also the 2 sound files. Have fun!

**UPDATE** I tried this & can't seem to get the sounds (Go Long / Go Short) to play. The MajorBuyCycle indicator paints (LIME), but it does not play the sound. I may take another look at it, but after watching it perform today, I'm convinced that this cannot be used for profitable trading. See attached screenshot w/ notation.

NOTE: I did NOT program this indicator (Not trying to take credit for it). Just took the _sgCycleIdentifierGreen and attempted to add sound. Just wanted to make that clear. I gave it a unique name so as not to overwrite one of your existing indicators on download / import.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

I went thru all sarjo posts didn't see any mentioning of cycle at all.

on ninja board
Cycle Identifier ?? - Page 2 - NinjaTrader Support Forum
green trader renamed it to xxxgreen, are you saying green trader = sarjo?
greentrader didn't take any credit either. This is another reason why I don't like to stick my name to a indicator I modified least somebody think I try to take a credit for it, no big cap letter either.

The reason I put my initials on code that I modify that someone else wrote is so it is clear that it isn't the same as the one I started with.

hondo, this can be a useful indicator, at least for a heads-up... but it has a lot of unused and confusing code... I'm trying to figure it out (and my knowledge of NT/C# is very limited so far)... if I make any significant improvements, I'll post it here.

Keep in mind that even a Major marker can be reset (and thus disappear) if the close of that bar is later taken out.

its a dangerouse indicator and i would not advise anyone to use it,some really good programmers tore into the code and they said it was a bad bad knock off of the roy indicator and that it would never work right because of how it was written ...sharky
