You are welcome.



Well, for me, it was this morning.
And as I said, the code is a derivative of jtrealstats - he wrote the original, and I just made some mods to suit me. I just added your alert to the smaller version. He wrote some nice stuff, I just can't get to his blog anymore (johnthom.com)

Then I have again to say thank you, I appreciate your effort very much. If you come some time to Germany, let me know for a dinner invitation

OK, you want an alert on any vol in the row exceeding the threshold.
Here you go. One caveat -- you must set the Maximum # of Levels to 5 if you only want to check 5 rows.
Otherwise the indicator will display & check as many as it can. Play with it on a chart & you will see what I mean.

Lost Trader,

Can you create one where it actually alerts on the actual traded contracts on bid or ask

Thanks

Do you know what variable this would be? It doesn't sound like one that already exists in the DOM...
So right now... no I cannot.

If you know what variable you want to use, then maybe I can look into it later.

Total Vol Delta BOM Alert

ahhyaya, you also requested a different alert?


Quoting 
I have been trying to modify the alarm to go off when total bid => 2 of total ask and vice versa to no avail.

If it does not take up much of your time, could you please help me? It would be great if the % threshold can be decimal such as 1.50%.

This DOM calculates and displays the total it sees on the DOM, so I added an alert to look for deltas. Is this what you wanted?

WOW, This is awesome -- I have been trying to get somoene to work on this with multiple posts. Even tried finding a contract programmer at one point (when I still had money.)

I work and cannot be watching the charts all day. More important I noticed the ES and 6E globex often have reversals at points where there are huge outsized bids or offers that can easily act as "tells" for the change.

Any chance you could also have an alert on a percentage basis of bid vs ask? That would be if the bids are xxx% higher than the asks there would be an alarm. That may work better than trying to pick an acutal # because as the market gets more active a particular number would need to rise, but percentage would handle it automatically.

HUGE KUDOS for setting this up!

Big Mike, I have JTRealStats 1.06 but has heard there is a 2 and version 3 out there. Any chance you could try and find one of the higher versions to be modified for this code?

THANKS TO ALL!!!

1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.

I think that's what ahhyaya also requested - look at the post just prior to yours -- doesn't that version do what you want?

Big Mike, thanks, I was able to find more up to date “JTRealStats” but actually found too many, making it more confusing. Some are zips and some are indicator .cs

The version 106 attributed to Zondor (that I was using) that seems to be the latest posting April 18th, 2011:


Quoting 
"This one below is from Zondor. it has been posted in this thread. and it does show the arrows. I'm no expert, but I believe the...+"



But the post goes to state 106 works for arrows, etc...

jtRealstatsNT7v106.zip

jtRealStats broken after NT7 upgrade


But there is a v401 actually posted BY Zondor that is a cs only, on January 27th, 2011. Since all the others are zips I went with 106

JT_Realstats_RJ7v401.cs
jtRealStats broken after NT7 upgrade


Quoting 
" I sorta like this version…


Quoting 
Zondor”



https://futures.io/free_downloads/vip_elite_circle/304-download.html?view



And then there is the version v301 that I thought was going to be the latest but its post is all the way back to October 17th, 2010:

jtRealStat7v301v2.cs
Analysis and comparison on different data Feeds and Platforms for Bid/Ask Studies

Quoting 
…can actually agree with rjay on this one. The bid/ask defenitly doesn't update on every tick like it should most of the...




Big Mike, is there a way for you to advise LostTrader on which to use as the best / latest version where this additional code would likely be brought forward in other future releases of the indicator?

LostTrader, hopefully you are willing to make this update to a later version as discussed above.
----- ------- --------- ---------- -------- -----------
New item: When there is very low volume the percentage becomes too reactive and should not have the percentage alert if there were not a minimum amount of volume. This would allow the percentage indicator to be set to175 and not need altering in the very low periods, i.e… 6:15pm EST. when very low volume would make percent non-important. It would be a minimum value of volume that overrides the percent alert.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Sorry but no, I don't use NinjaTrader or this indicator, and am not familiar enough with it to know the differences between the versions.

how about spoken messages instead of sound alerts/


Ya know, we can make the DOM alert indicator talk, too. Giving spoken, meaningful messages read by Windows text to speech, constructed on the fly from programatically controlled concatenations of strings and variables. Instead of cryptic and meaningless sound files.

See old dormant thread called Let's Teach Ninjatrader How To Talk... it is not difficult. It works in a similar way to the technology in a GPS that gives spoken turn by turn directions with street names.
