closer

works fine when “cross over” condition is met

Crashes (and indicator disappears) when “cross under” condition met

can see this being very handy

really close

Found a bug – appears “Play Sound” feature is not working

---------------

Alert function working properly – user error .. Doh

Try this

Have added a second ATR pips

The first (in Blue, top) has the alert set to 6 pips – (FAST)
- Data source – 1 minute
- Period = 5

The second (black) – no alert – (SLOW)
- Data source – 1 minute
- Period = 15

The (FAST) Alert triggers as ATR increases – which may indicate some momentum is developing
I use the second (SLOW) ATR pips (black) as a reference to the longer established ATR

I have incorporated into my Scalping Strategy, and it seems to work pretty well – you will need to adjust the settings to suit the particular Instrument you are trading

just curious,

is it possible to create an ATR list indicator of the various pairs, including CFDs

for use in a day trading strategy - to help identify possible developing momentum, on a timely basis ?

thanks

I can not confirm this.
Can you specify the exact indicator version / Web reference.

Usually ATR requires bar source.

Tick ATR is possible, however the value may vary.

ATR on the Tick Chart.JPG
DAX Nov 25, 2016 (ET)
apologies for the delayed response

appears I was using an older version - Font sizing works fine with most recent

was hoping to include ATR pips indicator on a tick chart - am currently using a MTF (customized) version to identify momentum on a 1 minute chart (side by side with Tick-chart) - works pretty good imo

it would be easier/nicer/cleaner if the tick chart could also support ATR pips indicator

ATR (MTF) calculations are set to a 1 minute timeframe - when shorter period ATR exceeds slower/longer, it may indicate gathering momentum

your help would be appreciated

Thanks
