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.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

novice needs help with a script for TOS

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

I am a long time basic user of the TOS platform with NO experience with script writing.

I use the “Create Alert” feature with every graph along with
the “Notify with: Sound”.

That said, I was wondering if a similar alert can be used with a Study of yours
I use called “MACDWithPrices”. I would like the alarm to sound when
the fast length crosses over/under the slow length or the slow length crosses over/under
the fast length including the “Reverse Crossover” using a Watch List as its universe of symbols.
I would also like to receive a text message.

Can you help me construct this? Or can you put me in touch with someone?

open MarketWatch Tab,
right click on any symbol row, and select CREATE ALERT, then in "When To Notify" dropdown, choose STUDY- EDIT, then click ADD CONDITION, and in "select condition" dropdown, choose your CUSTOM STUDY, and set desired conditions.
