Re: Line Cross Alert

Hello again Apprentice (& everyone else on the forum),

Unfortunately I am finding that the alert only sounds some of the time. I am applying it in exactly the same way each time as far as I can tell. At this moment as I write, an alerted trend line (on a one minute chart) has been crossed 4 times without sounding. On the 5th cross (about 10 minutes after the first violation) it has begun to sound & has sounded on the 6th & 7th crosses.

So it seems that it has taken 10 minutes for it to get the idea. Do you have any thoughts? Has anyone else found the same thing happening?

Update. I am figuring out that the alert is only sounding when approached from above. Yet I first drew the line when price was below it. I have double checked this with several other trend lines & the alert is definitely only sounding when approached from above.

The alert sounds without any time delay when approached from above, so, it is nothing to do with the passing of time, but the direction from which the line is approached.

Hello Apprentice,

I am wondering whether you have noticed my last two posts & whether you have time to reply. Since posting I have continued to attempt using the MLCA but without success. Tonight alerts are not sounding at all & the indicator seems to have corrupted other indicators. E.g. standard price alerts have sometimes not been sounding. Another example is that the numbers that go with the MLCA lines have been appearing when I apply other indicators such as the parabolic SAR & ATR (even though the MLCA indicator has been deleted from the chart).

Unfortunately, I was busy.
I encourage you to wait for the next update TS.
Indicator will get native alert support.
This alert helper business can become messy,
especially if multiple instances are used.

Hi Apprentice,
Thanks so much for your reply. I understand both your busy-ness & the difficulties. That is marvellous news that the trend line alert will be in the next TS update!

Thanks Apprentice,

It is working well & is extremely useful for my trading. I hope it is useful for others too.

When you have time I would like to be able to add a second alerted trend line to a chart too.

Many many thanks. :)

Hello Apprentice,

Is there any word on the native support? Thank you again for your help on this. It's amazing it hasn't already been included yet.
