Alert flag

@Fat Tails

I day trade stocks and have numerous charts (3-5 min) open on my radar workspace . . . my problem is that when a sound alert goes off I have a hard finding the correct chart in a timely manner . . . would it be possible for there to be a flag that pops up on the chart when a sound alert triggers ?

Thx for your great indies . . .

Ciao, rick

Did you try to use the Alerts window? You can open it via File -> New -> Alerts.

The Alerts window will show you the following information:

- instrument for which alert has been triggered
- priority
- time at which the alert has been triggered
- alert message

If you have several charts open for the same instrument, you have to find out yourself, for which of those charts an alert was generated.

Also see screenshot attached.

@Fat Tails

Consider to add some filter to BetterVolume for the future enhancements.

Could you be more specific?

Specifically,you can add the bar`s size as a filter,the way so it won`t take signals if the bar`s size is too big.The bigger the bar for the signal,the more it tends to hit stops.There can be another futher improvements which takes the viewpoint of the chart into account,meaning where the signals occur, - upper/lower edge of the screen.Have got the study that signaling when the upper/lower edge is reached.Can share with the Elite,if you are willing to add it.

Just a cpouple of goodies that could possibly improve the performance.

The BetterVolume indicator looks for climax bars, which are wide range bars. As it searches for wide ranging bars, why would I want to exclude bars with a significant bar size? Those are the wide ranging bars that I look for!

I meant the filter to control the size of those bars,NOT exclude them.But do nothing,it`s up to you.

With the help of @Silvester17 I have added a paint bar study to the Better Volume indicator.

The updated version can be downloaded here:

https://futures.io/download/ninjatrader-7/indicators/856-download.html?view

The update includes a paintbar only version, which does not show the lower panel.

Hi,

Thanks for the indicator! I am still seeing issues with the yellow bars being the highest instead of the lowest on the latest update. Is there a latest version?

Thanks much,
Jeff

Low Volume Bars


@Fat Tails,

I have found what i believe to be a minor bug with the painting of the Low Volume Bars . . .

Sometime when it prints an up (close>open) low volume bar it is solid instead of outlined . . .

Reloading the ninja script or data corrects the misprint . . . I use both versions and think it occurs in both . . .

No big deal but thought you would want to know . . .

This is a great indicator . . . I use it daily . . . thank you ! ! !

Ciao, Rick
