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.

Alert when market moves X amount of ticks in X amount of time

Hi guys,

Does somebody know if there is a Ninjatrader indicator or strategy available that gives an alert when an instrument moves an X amount of ticks in an X amount of time?

Many thanks,

Sandor

What kind of alert: a sound, a popup window, ... ?

A sound would be best but if there is something available with a popup window, I would be very happy too.

Thanks a lot!

Here is a skeleton then:
 
Code
			
...
private 
int window 10
private 
int moveLength 5;
...
protected 
override void OnBarUpdate() {
   if ( (
CurrentBar window) && (!Historical)) {
      if (
Range()[window] > moveLength)
        
PlaySound(Cbi.Core.InstallDir.ToString()+"\\sounds\\Beep.wav");
      }
   }
