Stochastics indicator that sends email alert

Hi all, I'm new to NinjaTrader and I have a pretty basic question. I want to add a "send email" function to the Stochastics indicator so that I can add it to the Market Analyzer window and have NT send me an email alert every time Stochastics is overbought/sold. Do I need to hire a programmer to create a custom indicator or does something like this already exist in freeland?

Thanks for any advice you can offer.....

From Ninjatrader help



Sends an email message.


SendMail(string from, string to, string subject, string text)

* Calls to this method are ignored on historical data, it will only work in real-time.


From email address

To email address

Subject line of email

Message body of email


// Generates an email message

SendMail("", "", "Trade Alert", "Buy ES");

Something like
if(Stochastics(7,14,3).D[1] < 20 )
SendMail("", "", "Trade Alert", "YourStock is OverSold");
should work.
