Peter,

I did not change the alerts, so if the alertsOnHighLow is set to true then the alert is triggered when the high or low cross the bands and if set to false, it is triggered when the close crosses bands

The "alert on current" simply means does it allert on current (still opened bar) or on a previous (first closed) bar. So, if the alertsOnCurrent is set to false it will alert only when the bar closes

Mladan, does the "alert on current" indicate a cross of the band?

umesh,

Let me check : you want an arrow to appear only when the bar is closed and while it is opened you do not want any arrows on an opened (current) bar?

Also, I would just like to remind you that along with the centered triangular moving average recalculation it is going to add lag to arrow appearing, and to please always bear in mind that centered TMA is always going to look very good on history because of its recalculation (that is the reason why I never recommended centered TMA to be used in a EA but as an aid in manual trading A good thread about it by simba can be found here here : https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/179608

umeshkathuria:
mladen, few more thing to add:

1. Please make the arrows appear on completion of the candle i.e. for arrows add Alertoncurrent=false .

2. Arrows are not giving alerts and emails. Kindly check that.

Thanks

Arrows and alerts are not the major concern and you can ignore this request.

I request you to visit my last post on previous page and see if you can do something about that.

Thanks

umesh,

I have been using these bands and mtf TM arrows as well, and can tell you that you will get false entries when higher timeframe is trending in a different direction as lower/current tf. This week the higher TFs were trending UP most of the week on the majors. The point is that this may reverse and for example if next week the higher TF is trending lower, u will see much of the opposite of this past week (u will get many bad/false up arrows on the lower/current tf chart).

One possible enhancement could be a built -in filter for the arrows to only display current TF arrows in direction of higher tf chart trend.

Mladen, can this be done?

ALSO, I HUMBLY REQUEST an mtf version of your excellent modified ADXm smoothed

THANKS!

mladen,

Hi. Could you please simply fix these alerts so that they alert correctly by email at the beginning of the next bar? It makes no difference to me whether or not they appear and disappear on the current bar.

Your programming skill is a great value for elite subscribers!

Thanks to umesh for sharing his great ideas regarding tma bands.

TMA Bands

Odysseus,

In the strategy I mentioned on previous page I am using only current time frame TMA bands for entry. The strategy is to trade with the trend. In downtrends I am using current time frame upper TMA band only for entries, when the price pulls back to this band I enter into a fresh short position.

The higher time frame for lower band is used only for identifying the change of trend. When the price crosses and closes beyondthe higher time frame lower band it tells me that the price has entered into an oversold territory and trend reversal is likely. At that point I swap the timeframe of upper and lower bands. Because now I will be considering entering only long positions by watching the lower timeframe lower TMA band and price crosseovers.

Lower time frame band is used for entries, upper time frame band is used only for anticipating the trend reversals.

mladen, can you please modify this TMA version 2 indicator with different timeframes for upper and lower bands and these timeframes swap when the price crosses and closes beyond the higher timeframe band.

Regards,

Umesh

Chris,

If I am correct you are referring to alerts in a multi time frame mode. If yes, they are fixed now (they are now taking into account the target time frame too, so the target time frame is strictly honored - previous version did not take into account the high, low and close of the target time frame but those were taken from a current time frame, also interpolated values were used for alerts and they should not)

If you set the alertsEmailto true it will send an email too. Some details how to set up metatrader to send emails can be found here : Secrets of MetaTrader 4 Client Terminal: Alerting System - MQL4 Articles . I am sending you these details simply because I do not know if the problem is in setting up the email alerts which is explained in detail at that link

Dear mladen,

could you please help me on this ? Some days before I asked for a modification of your "T3_Momentum Burst + mtf" (post # 1652, # 1650).

I know you are a busy man and I really appreciate your work and the wealth of information in this forum and because you wrote this indicator I'm adressing this question to you.

I would like to use two "T3_Momentum Burst + mtf" with different TF in the same sub-window. The problem is, that if I do so, both Zero-lines don't fit. I know it is an indicator oscillating around the zeroline.

I know that a calibration can be made by hand - by adjusting the "Fixed minimum" or "Fixed maximum" of the indis "Common" tab. But that just holds for a short time. As soon as time goes on and price runs out of the window, this calibration becomes obsolete. So this is no solution. I think if possible, it should be done inside the indi.

Can this be done ? Or is this an impossible request ?

Sorry if this is a silly question. I'm not a programmer and I must admit that I don't have any idea.

Please, can you or someone of the programmers please help me with this ?

Thanks in advance

TTM Scalper Indicator

mladen,

Hi. Could you please add email alerts to this one? It would alert only after the swing point, has been painted and closed. For example,

1. the swing point bar is painted two bars after its close

2. whenever the bar is painted permanently I would like the alert

I don't know if the swing point bar is painted permanently at the beginning of the second bar, during the second bar's movement, or after the second bar's close.

Secondly, is there a way to put a RISK setting in the Inputs tab? I have seen some indicators with one. This would provide more flexibility and experimentation to me when trying TTM with different timeframes, etc.

Thank you.

derfel,

I think that this is what you are looking for.

This one is a "2 file indicator" (you need both indicators in order to make the "2" version work, for now could not come up with a solution that would make it a singe file indicator, too much recursive pitfalls) but it does what you are asking. If you change the name of the "T3_Momentum Burst + mtf" indicator, the, please, enter the exact name in the IndicatorFileNameparameter
regards
