Quick Alerts

Quick Alerts is part of the MT4 Quality of Life Improvement series of indicators for sale.

Quick Alerts offers a fast and convenient method of enabling and disabling alerts for MT4 using objects.

Quick Alerts comes configured by default to automatically create alerts for the following objects when they are placed on a chart:

  • Horizontal Lines
  • Rectangles
  • Trendlines
  • Channels
  • Price Labels

It also allows you to enable or disable alerts on an object simply by clicking on the button with the speaker icon and then clicking on the object.

Push Notifications can be enabled by clicking on the button with a speaker icon then clicking the button with a lightning bolt icon.

To limit the annoyance of triggering the alarm immediately, there is a one minute cooldown whenever:

  • A new object is placed on the chart
  • The timeframe is switched
  • The settings on the indicator's properties are changed

After an alert has been triggered, a 1 minute cooldown is initiated before another alert is sent.

Quick Alerts disables itself over the weekend or when no connection to your broker is detected as to avoid unwanted alerts when backtesting.
