Is it true that an alarm will only trigger when the particular profile is selected for viewing in Metatrader? I have individual profiles setup for each currency , but it appears that an alarm only triggers when I have the particular profile selected for viewing.
This is the old pivot calculator, re-written in the new syntax. Nice thing about this one is that it auto-updates at the end of each trading-day, no need to temporarily switch to D1 time-frame. This is my first program in the new syntax, so there is probably room for improvement in the coding...
