Del10, looking at the code, it already has alerts, but it repaints and not a good idea to use a repainting indicator.
The alert is not working in this indicator. Anybody else having this indicator with alert working properly?
thanks in advance.
As far as I remember, that is this indicator (it was made a long, long time ago) : ma_trends.mq4
But I would be careful with it - the results on that picture are typical misleading cherry picked results (typical for that site - they almost always do so). Compare them. You shall see what I mean
Exactly both are same. Thanks for the guidance. I like this indicator because it shows good signals and works good on lower TF M5 & M15.
I understand there are lot of false signals. I will always enter the trade in pull-backs with TDI ssa indicator to avoid the continuous false signals at ease. Otherwise I can catch most of the long trends.
There is no alert in indicator MA trend. It will be appreciable and useful if you create an alert with message and sound.
NB: Your name is missing in code header? pls. add it.
Here is the version with alerts : ma_trends_amp_alerts.mq4
PS: as far as I remember the indicator was floating around - all I did was some cleaning. I was not the one that made that indicator originally, hence no name in it (since I really can not remember who is the original author of it)
Has anyone ever came up with an alert for this indicator?
In reference to (post #11701) Anyone have a brief explanation how this indicator works? I put it on chart and I don't see anything. I know it favors adx but is it intentionally suppose to be invisible on charts and just send alerts? A brief explanation would be very helpful as it seems as it Identifies when trends kick off. Also what is the best time frame to use it on? In reference to (post #11701)
Fxtrendstrader, you need the ADX from here: https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/180648/page780, about the best time frame to use it on probably ask Samuelkanu about that.
Hi Ranger_lp, made this version with alerts, it's coded differently but the results look the same.
Thank You very much Mr.Tools!!!
