I modified the MA crossing indicator so we can have a Stochastic crossing indicator. It has an alert too. It'll alert only once per crossing and not every bar. In addition, it has an e-mail alert. You can choose 10 different arrow styles:
Typical alert messages:
EURJPY (M30): Stoch (30,10,10) crosses UP
EURJPY (M15): Stoch (30,10,10) crosses DOWN
I modified the MA crossing indicator to add in a pop-up alert, e-mail alert and you get to choose 10 different arrow styles. The alert will pop up only once and not every bar. The alerts can be turn on or off.
EURJPY (M30): EMA(4) crosses UP EMA(8)
USDCHF (M15): SMA(5) crosses DOWN EMA(12)
Is there perhaps an indicator that not only alerts, but could actually draw like a box or highlight a candle when it is 'x' size big?
You mean something like post #978 in the Murrey Math thread?
BBands Stop with email alert
Here's the BBands Stop with email alert. The old version has only pop-up alert. In addition, you can choose any arrow and dot symbol based on the WingDings font. Just input in a number between 33 and 255.
MACD(5,13,1) is the crossing of EMA(5) and EMA(13). So what you need is an EMA crossover alert. Check out my post #763
You get to choose 10 different arrows.
It would be great if anyone could add an e-mail alert for this indicator, so i can get alert whenever it crosses and i can enter and not miss a trend
Check out my post #763. It has an email alert.
I modified it so you can choose any WingDings symbol for crossover arrows. This indi has a pop-up and an e-mail alert too.
Here is the Indicator version-1 to generate several ways of Alerts for Buy/Sell signals. This Indicator is only to simplify the work, not to eliminate the work! This Indicator needs Laguerre.ex4 to be present in the Indicators folder (no need to attach it, but if you have attached to a chart that is not a problem). If you do not have the Laguerre.ex4, I am attaching a version here.
The details of the method and further ways of improvements/filtering can be seen in the following thread and the link below. PLEASE read the first post there carefully and practice/demo trade first until you get the feel for the system before entering real trades.
Simple Method of Scalping GBP/Jpy on 5 min chart-by Imran Sait
Best of Pips,
The LISPA1 Indicator Settings:
Default settings are fine and actually no change is needed. However,
MaximumBars = 1000; increase it for visual backtesting (do not reduce).
ArrowDistance = 10; 10-pips from prior bar range; increase it if too much overlap is seen or decrease it if the arrow signals are too far. If too far, the signals will go out of screen also.
UseLaguerre2Filter = false; it is very basic filter and not as good as humans. So, currently not recommended (but you can test and if you like, use it).
SendEmail = false; When a signal arrow comes in the chart, an email will be sent (see the details below about how to setup Email sending). Very useful for longer timeframe users (even 15M or above 60M, though generally we use 1M or 5M charts)
PopUpAlert = false; it will bring a popup-alert window when a new signal comes.
TextSignal = true; This will show last signal direction as text, with new bar start time.
TextPosition = 700; in pixels, you can move the text horizontally to a clear area, if needed.
SoundAlert = true; The selected sound file will be played when a new signal comes. This way we can know there is a signal in one of the charts and no need to stare the charts all the time and do something else while waiting. Great for monitoring multiple charts without tiring the eyes.
SoundFile = alert; By default, uses the alert.wav file placed in the MT4/sounds folder (this file comes with MT4). You can place any .wav file in this folder and change the name here and use it. Use only the first part of the name, the extension should not be given (and it is assumed to be .wav).
SoundTime1 = 800; SoundTime2 = 1600; These two are the time range when the Sound will work (we don't want to hear it while sleeping!). It is in local time, NOT broker time.
Setting up Email:
1. Go to Tools --> Options.
2. Select the Email Tab.
3. Click on the Enable box and fill all the information.
4. Test it and you are ready to go.
(5. Long timeframe users can even send it through email2sms services to their mobil phones, this was one of the ideas of having this option, but may not be needed for now).
This is not mine.
I tried xpMA_V2 and set MA_type to 8(hma), but no luck.
Try this. It has pop-up and e-mail alert.
Here are the source codes of Gann Hi Lo. I still don't know how to add in an alert for this indi.
