    Can alerts be maintained for a given instrument even when the chart is not open?

    Hello. I'm new to NinjaTrader. I maintain a list of 80-odd futures contracts that I check for trading signals, and I need to place alerts on practically all of them. But, for obvious reasons, I cannot have 80 instruments open in my charts simultaneously. If I place an alert on one instrument, say 6A, and I switch to another chart, I get a dialog box saying that if I don't switch the alert to the new instrument (which, for me, would be pointless), the alert will be removed. Am I missing something, or is it not possible to maintain alerts on lots of different instruments without having all those instruments open at the same time?

    Hello neil85,

    Thank you for your post.

    You could use the alerts feature within the Market Analyzer, which is NinjaTrader's answer to the traditional quote sheet, a high powered quote sheet that enables real-time market scanning of multiple instruments based on your own custom criteria. You can use the Market Analyzer to display indicator, market and trade data in a highly customizable manner adding a wide range of functionality to extend the features of traditional quote sheets, such as the ability to view indicator values, create alerts, and link to charts and order-entry windows for instant instrument switching.

    In the Market Analyzer, you can add an indicator as a column. Add the indicators you wish to create an alert with to your market analyzer.

    Here is the Market Analyzer Overview video.

    The Market Analyzer Display help guide covers these features in detail.
