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

did you already try to locate it with the alert window?

otherwise alert4.wav sounds like a door bell.

Thanks Mike. Sounds like I need to do that. The darn thing wakes me up every night.

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:



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.

@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.

I get that obnoxious loud alert as soon as I open up Ninjatrader, and I don't even have a workspace or chart open. Sometimes I get a bunch of them right on startup. I have no idea what it's trying to tell me, because nothing is open!

Check for log and trace files in those folders under your NinjaTrader main folder.
