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.

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.

Audio Alerts Stock Hacker Screens

Scenario: In stock hacker I have a scan that results in 500 stocks. One of my columns (along with last, high, name of stock, symbol, etc,) is a custom true-false formula that identifies any of those 500 stocks when stock price movement is up by a certain percent in one minute and volume is double the average volume over the previous 10 minute segments - i.e., I'm looking for short-term bursts. But I do not want to sit there and stare at the screen waiting for a "1.0" to appear. I have tried to put an audio alert in the true-false formula but so far I haven't been able to get a sound when the trigger is hit, and as far as I know I'm using the proper alert syntax. Has anyone out there ever created an audio ALERT syntax that would work in this scenario?
