    Alerts on multiple instruments

    Hello,

    Is it possible to setup alerts when price reaches certain number on different pairs? Currently whenever I switch to another chart, it gives me a warning that the alert will be lost.

    Thanks,
    Ulises.

    Hello ulisesguerrero,

    Thanks for your post.

    Alerts can only be added to data series that are currently added to a chart. To avoid removing your alerts when you want to look at a different chart, I may suggest to add tabs for data series that you switch to frequently.

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.

      Thank you.

      I monitor/trade more than 30+ instruments, it would be way too complex to have a tab for each one of them. Any other alternative?

        Hello ulisesguerrero,

        Another suggestion may be to leave a chart open that has the alerts applied and to use another chart window for your regular viewing.

          Hello,

          I tried using the market analyzer, right click and Alerts, and then I can enable alert for a single instrument and a specific price. Seems to work, but it is a very cumbersome process to add one alert. Is there a faster way of creating the alert within Market Analyzer?

          Ideally just right click a chart on a certain price, set alert.

          Thanks

            Hello ulisesguerrero,

            The current ways to assign alerts are the easiest it can get unless changes are made to the NinjaTrader platform.

            I have submitted a feature request on your behalf in order to right click on a chart or Market Analyzer cell to more easily apply an alert at a given price level.

            The ticket ID is: SFT-3557

            We collect interest in feature requests before determining if the feature should be implemented. For that reason we cannot offer an ETA or promise of fulfillment. Upon implementation, the number for the ticket ID can be publicly found in the Release Notes page of the help guide. I will provide a link below.

              Hello,

              Thank you. Is it possible to add custom right-click menu items? A custom button wouldn't work well, because it would not be aware of the price the alert needs to be set to.

              That's the easiest way I know, to simply right-click on the chart at a certain price (horizontal line) and enable alert.

              Regards

                Hello ulisesguerrero ,

                It is possible to use undocumented code to add to the context menu of a chart from an indicator.

                Below is a link to a sample script that does this.

                  Hello Chelsea,

                  Thank you. Nice example. I was thinking of adding it on the main menu (after right click) rather than the indicator menu. Do you have an example for this? The example only works if I click on the particular indicator, SMA or EMA, but I want to add the item to the menu on any right click as long as it is within the chart area.

                  Thanks

                    Hello Ulises,

                    I modified the script and accomplished this using OnRender. See Attached.

                    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

                        Hello Alan,

                        Thank you for the example. Unfortunately, it doesn't work 50% of the time, sometimes it appears, sometimes it doesn't, specially won't appear after sequential right clicks. I'll try to see if I can find the reason.

                        Regards,

                          Hello Ulises,

                          I moved the logic out of on render and it should work consistently.

                          Please let us know if you need further assistance.

                            Hello Alan,

                            Thank you. Excelent, working steady now! Do you know if its possible to move the item to the top of the list, or alongside the Buy and Sell Stops?

                            Regards
