    Some Help With Alerts Please

    1. I can't seem to find a consolidated screen that has all my alert settings and where I can tweak and alter individual alerts.

    2. My alert screen tells me in the first column which instrument the alert relates to ... which is great. But if I have multiple time frame charts open, all of the same instrument, I can't tell from the alert box which of the charts generated the alert. How can I modify my alert box to give me this info?

    3. If I right click an individual alert in the alert box I get some options, but I don't get an option to change the sound, text message or any other properties for that particular type of alert, I seem to have to do it all from the indicator. Is there any way around this?

    4. My alert box shows date of alerts but not time. Can I get time as well in there?

    Hello Instamess,

    Thank you for your note.
    1. There is no single window for altering all alerts that appear in the alerts window. this must be done from each indicator or Market Analyzer column where the alert has been set.
    2. You will not be able to alter the alerts window but you can alter each alert message in it's respective window (chart or Market Analyzer) to list the window it has alerted from.
    3. You will have to change each setting for each alert in the window that it has alerted from whether a chart indicator or Market Analyzer column.
    4. You would have to create a custom indicator for the alert and add the time to the alert message.

    For information on the Alerts window please visit the following link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...nt7/alerts.htm

    For information on editing indicators in the chart please visit the following link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...indicators.htm

    For information on editing alert conditions in the Market Analyzer please visit the following link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h..._and_filte.htm

    If you have question on creating a custom indicator for your alert please let me know. You can find information on developing indicators at the following link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...indicators.htm

    Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

      I 'm also trying to figure out alerts in Market Analyzer but alerts are NOT working. I followed the instructions to the letter in the link you provided using ADX and no alerts at all???

      I'm using ADX > 30 and show several symbols > 30 but no alerts??

      I double checked and right clicked in the Market Analyzer to make sure alerts is selected, but no luck???

        Hello gapmeister,

        Thank you for your post.

        Do you have the Alerts window open? (File > New > Alerts)

        Can you attach a screenshot of the Alert Condition you have created for the ADX to your response? (Right click in your Market Analyzer > Columns > ADX > Alert Conditions)

        I look forward to your response.

                Hello gapmeister,

                Thank you for your response.

                You will need the Alerts window open to see the alerts. when you setup your alert there was no sound selected, so no sound is played. You can however go to the Market Analyzer > right click > select Columns > ADX > Alert Conditions > select a sound > OK > OK. This way you will hear the sounds played for the alerts.

                Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

                    Hello gapmeister,

                    Thank you for your response.

                    You need to create a Cell Condition for that: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h..._and_filte.htm

                    Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.
