Does anybody know how how to create a study for TOS that sends an alert when a candlestick UP/Down reaches a specified size/amount.

This would be for the Today 1m candlestick chart. I don't need the average or nothing fancy, Also it would be nice if it can mark it on the chart.

Let me know if there is a TOS import for this already or if some one can write the code down for me thank you.

Don't Know if this helps directly, but as a starting point Steve Bigalow's followers have put together scan codes for numerous candle patterns in both both TOS and Wordon Bros flavors. A one month trial to his chat room (usually available for a very low sum following one of his free seminars) will give you access to download the codes.
