MA turn indicator needed

I am looking for an indicator that is a modification of the basic Moving Average indicator in MQ4.

All I want it to do .. is when one of the MA's changes direction at the close of the bar, (from up to down or down to up) then I want it to make a sound/alert or say something using the Speech function to alert me that it has changed direction.

If this can be done, perhaps I can have 2 input variables:

1) to turn the sound on/off and

2) to define the time in seconds BEFORE the close of the current bar to give this audible alert.

eg; I would like it to sound the alert say 10 seconds before the bar closes

thanks

Hi, thank you. I have applied it to a chart but it alerts after every pip movement.

Can you make the following change:

Only alert when the ma has Changed direction eg, when changed from up to down or vice versa determined at the close of the bar ?

thankyou

Try this one. It will Alert once per a bar of selected window period.

Hi

great .. this works just fine.

How difficult would it be to add this functionality into the standard moving average indicator - then I wouldn't have to have 2 indicators on my chart .. the mov average and your ma_alert ?

thanks
