http://screencast.com/t/JSkKUPQEip (My Attempt)


With my limited programming abilities, I am trying to duplicate the chart covered by the first link.
TMA(12) highs
TMA(12) lows
Close crosses above TMA_highs =buy
Close crosses below TMA_lows = sell
I would like visual popup alerts and arrow alerts (down arrow above high of candle and up arrows at low of candles.

I'm close with my attempt, but I'm sure it could be relatively easy to make it shine.

The price cross alert (original version) does not work for detecting a touch of the MA. It only works after closure of the candle. I am finding that when I set it to "touch" it still waits for the candle to close before sending an alert. I need it to send an alert as soon as the MA is touched on a one minute timeframe.

I have tried both MA Price Cross Signal and MTF Price MA Signal. The original versions of each. I cannot find any later versions of either strategy. These strategies are essentially the same & neither provide an alert response in a one minute time frame when the MA is touched. Both do not respond until the bar closes.

Many thanks. It seems to be working perfectly.

I notice that there is no longer an option for us to set the alert to sound after a bar closes. There are also times when I would like to able set the alert to sound only after the candle closes. Is it possible to put this option back so that we can choose between touch (instantaneous) & close?

I also notice that there is no longer an option to specify the timeframe in which the moving average is applied. I would like to be able to set the alert up in a specific timeframe, then be able to move between other timeframes without this changing the alert. For example the alert might be set in an hourly timeframe, but I am mainly viewing the chart in 1 & 5 minutes.

I am finding that sometimes the alert sounds & sometimes it doesn't. I am thinking that it is to do with the options "live" & "end of turn". I have played around with both of them but cannot figure out what each does. I currently have the alert set to "live" & it seems random when it decides to sound. Many times the MA is crossed without a response. Could you please explain. Thanks.
