Hi

How can I get alerts in realtime for specific bunch of scrips in such a way that whenever scrips reaches a specific price I get an alert.

I want to enter alert using horizontal line or any other way deemed fit.

Is that possible in MT4 or MT5?

Please help.

Thank you

Write an Indicator that watches your Horizontal line and when price gets within a specified range the Alert is called. It can be coded in mql4 or mql5, if you can't code it there are people here that will happily do it for you: happy to write your code for you in mql4 or mql5

You would need to run the Indicator on a chart of each of the Symbols you are interested in and place your Horizontal line on each accordingly.

If my active window is GOOG and say I have an alert on MSFT, still I will receive alert on MSFT?

Yes. As long as you have the MSFT chart still open . . .

So if 5 charts (tabs) are open, alerts will work on all 5.

Yes, if you create the Indicator, put it on each chart and set the Horizontal line where you want the Alert . . .
