Profit Target and Stop Loss execution sounds on platform

What are you guys using for your Stop Loss and Profit Target execution sounds on your platform?

For my stop's, I just use a 'thud' sound, very minimal.

For target's I am currently using the Ninja "cha-ching" (even though I use Sierra) but it's a bit annoying sometimes. I was thinking of having some fun with it and using "Hallelujah" but it would also get annoying very quick when taking off many contracts on the same level or near the same level in a fast moving market.

Was wondering what you guys use.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Not a thing;
I turn my speakers off when trading.

It is hard to find the Truth when you start your search with a preconceived notion of what the Truth will be.

I use the ATT text to speech for a majority of my alerts. So the alerts say exactly what it is. Target hit stop hit. Order filled. Etc. Since i hold for longer periods it does not become annoying.

I used a free online text to speech tool. So I have a female voice saying the following:

- Target filled
- Stop filled
- Order cancelled
- Order filled

No confusion as to exactly what is happening. No fancy special effects or anything,...it just tells me what is happening.

Diversification is the only free lunch

No sounds for executions. I use ATT text to speech files to announce when some conditions become true and I need to pay attention to those.
