How to Identify Annoying Sound Alerts?

How to Identify Annoying Sound Alerts in NT7? Having several Workspaces open using the same template including a bunch of indicators, keep hearing this annoying door bell sound alert. I have checked all the indicators for any sound alert settings, but no luck. I know the process of elimination will work, but this annoying sound alert disappears for a while then comes back, no telling when will it come back, driving me crazy. If I know the .wav file name, I will delete it.

Go to the NT sounds directory and play each file until you find it. Then just rename it if you are desperate

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
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.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

- Topic: Anything to do with an Elite indicator -> Subforum: The Elite Circle
- Topic: Looking for an existing indicator, or how-to use an indicator -> Subforum: (the platform)
- Topic: Programmer needing help with non-Elite indicator -> Subforum: (the platform) - Programming
- Topic: Want an indicator created/modified -> Reply to "Want indicator created free" in Elite Circle
- Topic: Vendors (trading rooms, commercial indicators) -> Subforum: Vendors/Product Reviews
- Topic: Discussion of Forex or Currency trading -> Subforum: Forex and Currency Trading
- Topic: Journals of your trading -> Subforum: Trading Journals or Elite Trading Journals
- Topic: General trading related discussions -> Subforum: Traders Hideout
- Topic: Discussion of a trading method -> Subforum: Traders Hideout
- Topic: Automated Trading -> Subforum: Elite Automated Trading

Last, any Elite Member may create more or less any of these topics in The Elite Circle at your own discretion (your support is appreciated).

This is just a short general list and doesn't cover everything. If you are unsure where to create your new thread, just create it in Traders Hideout and a moderator will move it if necessary.

Thanks Silvester17, Alert4 rings a bell now What do you mean by "locate it with the alert window"? Do you mean on the list of parameters (true, false), or list of sound files?

all those ringing bells. lol

if you go to: file, new and alerts, you'll get the following window:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


if you hear the annoying alert, check that window. maybe with help of the time and name, you'll be able to locate the indicator.

@Silvester17,

You are the MAN and the life saver. This is definitely the trick for finding the culprit. It's funny, in all these years I have never used this feature in Ninja. I'm going to look and see what else I have been missing.

Thanks a whole bunch!!!

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