I am trying to create an alert based upon 5 rules that I use to manually trade each day. Below are the rules to trade and following is the script that I have so far.
Here's what I got... This is designed for Short Term Momentum Trading, and if you are willing to put in the butt-time in your seat, you will enter winning trades up to 90% of the time; however, you must be willing to follow the rules and not get emotional. Please don't ask me about profit targets or programming a fully functional EA; if I could do that, I'd be a millionaire and I wouldn't be here looking for assistance. So, don't ask; I don't have answers that you're looking for. PS - Yes I realize that these rules are REALLY lagging - I just want to catch part of a trend. I'm not greedy.
Alert Rules (BUY):
Alert Rules (SELL):
Obviously, not all rules are going to hit at the same time. Once all indicator rules line up, I'd like:
Obviously, in the above picture the signals are not exact - I am just trying to give a visual representation of how I trade. Signal 3 is wrong as the +DI hasen't crossed the 20 threshold. Signal 5 occurs 1 - 2 candlestick later than I marked. I probably could have found a better chart as an example.
My problem is twofold. One - it just doesn't function correctly. It's programmed as I requested, however the results are way off from what my indicators are telling me visually. Two - The alert works with a BUY signal,; however the alert does not work with a SELL signal.
I have two concerns that I'm hoping that you can address.
Is there a talented programmer out there that can assist me in finishing this alert? You would make my life so much easier and my broker so much happier!!!
Thanks in advance for any assistance that you can offer. I greatly appreciate any comments or coding that you can provide.
