Wanted: Simple Volume alert with sound only

Hi Folks,

I'm just looking for a very simple Volume alert with sound only. It should be very simple:

For example: if the volume increases 1000 contracts in the 1 min chart, or 5000 contracts in the 5 min Chart, only a sound alert should be initiated by a wav-sound file. Sound-file and Contract size should be selected by the trader and the option "caclulate on bar close = false" should be possible.

So what I mean is a very simple volume alert with sound but without any text or grafics on the screen like Volume bars etc.

Does something simple like this exist?

Best Regards and 1000 Thanks in Advance for your feddbacks

@DrE6,

this should have what you're looking for. it also has an option to color the background. if not needed just set it to false.

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



edit:

I didn't read that right. sorry about that.

the following version (V2) doesn't show the vol bars. it still has the option for the background, but can also be disabled.

You can use the anaLineAlertsOnIndicator, which can be found here:

Downloads - NinjaTrader 7 Indicators - Big Mike's Trading Forum

-> select the volume indicator as the input series for the indicator
-> select the same panel as for your volume indicators
-> the indicator allows you to define up to 10 alert levels, each with a different sound file
-> for activating an alert level you have to enter both a label and a value
-> instead of entering a new label you can also delete the preset label "-"
-> the alert will be triggered before the alert volume is reached, if you only wish to get the alert when the exact volume level is reached, you need to set the alert offset to zero

The indicator is not specificly coded for volume alerts, but can be used on any other indicator.

A sample chart is attached below. Feedback on bugs or for new features is welcome.

@DrE6,

you're welcome.

here's an updated version. now the alarm should only go off once per bar, as soon as threshold is met. also got rid of the background color option.

sorry for the confusion.

For Testing Purposes Only

I have entirely recoded the line alert indicators, which now have the following features


anaLineAlertsOnPrice:

-> alert can be selected as Cross_Above, Cross_Below or Both
-> an offset can be used, in that case the alert will be triggered before the line is crossed
-> the offset needs to be entered in ticks
-> for example if you want to be alerted when the line is touched (not crossed), you would enter an offset of 1 tick
-> the indicator has a function to trigger sound alerts and/or to send an e-mail
-> with COBC = false the sound alerts will trigger intra-bar (depending on rearm time), the e-mail alerts will only be triggered on bar close


anaLineAlertsOnIndicator:

-> alert can be selected as Cross_Above, Cross_Below, Both, Larger_Than or Smaller_Than
-> the indicator is therefore suited for indicators which display as lines or indicators which display as histograms (volume)
-> an offset can be used, in that case the alert will be triggered before the line is crossed or the threshold is reached
-> the offset has to be entered by using the indicator scale (indicators do not move in ticks)
-> the indicator has an option to trigger sound alerts and/or to send an e-mail
-> with COBC = false the sound alerts will trigger intra-bar (depending on rearm time), the e-mail alerts will only be triggered intra-bar with Larger_Than or Smaller_Than

Please report any bugs. The version attached is not the final version yet.
