Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

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.

If you cannot find your sound alerts immediately, you have applied too many indicators to your charts and should clean them up.

@Fat Tails,

They are mostly yours on 6 different monitors, perhaps you can combine all those anas into one mothership indicator, it will make life a lot easier

Just kidding, the culprit is the Price Action Swing with all its bells and whistles. I use it only to mark HH and LL pivots on the chart until I find a better and simpler indicator (hint hint).

Cheers!

@Fat Tails, found another obscure door bell culprit, anaBarTimer

I have 3 brand new charts with no indicators whatsoever on ant of them but I am getting the dreaded doorbell - driving my wife crazy.
I get it on my other workspace with indicators too but have got all audio alerts off.
I have checked the new alerts file and it is empty?
Any further suggestions?
Call Avon?

go to this folder \Program Files (x86)\NinjaTrader 7\sounds, delete Alert4. That will keep the bell off until it reload itself the next time you open NT again.

I would not delete alerts in the sound folder. You may need them at a later stage.

If you have set up 3 brand new charts with no indicators, they do not trigger sound alerts.

Probably you have opened a second workspace, which is running in the background. Select that second workspace and close it.

Hi.
Thanks for the reply.
I do have other workspaces but only the new workspace charts are visible.
How do you know if others are still running in the background?
Cheers

You know that other workspaces are running in the background when they have charts with indicators that trigger sound alerts.

...

Just select File -> Workspaces and all open workspaces will be shown in the popup window.

Hi.
Thanks for the reply.
So really?
So all saved workspaces, even though the charts are not open, are actually running?
I get it.
I save quite a few in case Ninja crashes which it has a habit of doing with Noft Dynamic Volume Indi.. I will get rid of the majority then.
Thanks.

The saved workspaces are not running.

Only the open workspaces are running which are shown in the lower section of the popup window.
