Wizard I applied this indicator and put the golive and goshort wav files in the NT sounds folder... but I'm getting no sounds (alert is true) on the major markers (or any for that matter. any ideas?

nevermind.. just saw your update, Wizard...

this is very convoluted code... I've been trying to sort it out for over a week.

Workin' on the sound problem. I still think it's a bad indicator, however. See the screenshot post from yesterday - all the MAJOR BUY signals it gave, then repainted them out many bars later. Glad I didn't risk real $$ on it !

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

I can't get the sound files to play either.

The indicator looks great, an hour after the fact. But I've found out that when I'm in a position it can give me an early warning when it's time to get out. Might have potential in pullback situations as well.

As the code stands now, you can't use it in a strategy because the values it generates vary from signal to signal. Just my 2 cents.

Saroj, I fixed the sound problem. I got the sound to play, but now it plays "GO LONG" or "GO SHORT" on EVERY bar (if that's not too irritating, here it is - give it a try). I'll give it another look over the weekend, but for now - it plays the sounds.
I changed the name to _sgCycleIdentifierGreenV2. The other name was too long & gave the mis-impression that I had created the indicator. Didn't want to take credit for something that wasn't my creation.

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

I NEED A REPLY FROM EVERYONE INTERESTED IN THIS INDY.

After thinking about it, It occurred to me that, although the sound plays on every bar once a major buy or major sell signal has occurred, that's not necessarily a bad thing. If you're not sitting near your computer when the Major buy/sell cycle goes off, you won't hear the sound. Question is. Should I leave it as is (sound plays on every bar) or fix it so the the sound ONLY plays one time when the major buy / sell cycle occurs?

Let me know your preference. Thanks.

Hi Wizard... I had already done that, but I think you will find that it keeps sounding even when that major indicator has been "reset" (i.e. deleted)... but possibly not as I don't know where you put the alert code...

In any case, I'm making major revisions to this code, getting the buy/sell dots to paint correctly and eliminating redundant values and code so, thank you, but unless you figure out how to get it to sound only once, I'll pass.

Hi Wizard,

I don't know if this indicator is a big help because of the repainting issue. It looks like the inventors of "the dots for dummies" had an eye on this indicator as well. What I would like to know is if somebody is using this indicator. It's doing a pretty good job and no repainting.

Isn't this scalper software signals after the fact? I believe it generates signals after couple of bars have passed by. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks

That's why I asked if somebody is using it. Because they are so proud in their ads about the signal coming in real time and staying on the chart, either with the first tick of the bar or the last tick of the bar (your choice of settings).

I'll work on getting the GoLong / GoShort sounds to play ONLY on the first indication of MajorBuySignal / MajorSellSignal over the weekend. If you want to take a look, the lines of code I added are: 60, 61, 62, 347, 401 and 647 through 667.
