    Alerts triggered before bar is finished

    Hello,

    I'm working with Alerts but they are triggered before the bar is finished. I want to buy when the close of bar is greater than an indicator but the alert is triggered when the price touch the indicator without to wait that the bar is concluded.

    Thanks in advance and regards.

    Hello soyjesus,

    Thank you for your post.

    Glad to assist. What indicator is in use?

    Can you please also post a screen shot of the Indicator settings shown for the indicator, along with the full Alert in question shown?

    We look forward to assisting further.

      Hello Eric,

      It doesn't work with any indicator. I have tested with my own indicators and with a simple moving average. I have worked with a 30 seconds chart and I have inserted a simple alert that enter long when the close is greater than the simple moving average. And I have checked that the buy-order has been triggered before than the bar of 30 seconds has finished.

        Thank you for your reply.

        I understand. Via the indicator settings, what is the Setup > Calculate option set to?

        What steps are used to set the alert?

        We look forward to assisting further.

          The indicator has the "Calculate on bar close" value.

          And about the alert, I have selected the same option with the close-price.

            Please provide the screenshots that Eric requested so we can see all of your alert properties for General and Conditions when using the SMA. Here is an example of what I need:

            https://www.screencast.com/t/qpCaZoZck

            To send a screenshot with Windows 7 or newer I would recommend using Window's Snipping Tool.

            Click here for instructions

            Alternatively to send a screenshot press Alt + PRINT SCREEN to take a screenshot of the selected window. Then go to Start--> Accessories--> Paint, and press CTRL + V to paste the image. Lastly, save as a jpeg file and send the file as an attachment.
