    Alert whenever price is 15 points above or below EMA

    Hi,

    How can I set up an alert so that NT8 emits a sound every time the price reaches 15 points above or below the EMA? I've experimented with several different configurations, but have failed to make it operate the way I want it.

    If possible, I'd like it to rearm automatically. If not, I don't mind doing it manually after it sounds.

    Thanks!

    Hello marinmessier,

    Thank you for your note.

    I believe that the complexity of this alert that you are looking to build would only be possible using custom programming with NinjaScript, the Alerts window's condition builder can only set a cross above/cross below condition for a specific value or comparing two items such as a data series and an indicator or two indicators plots. If you are a programmer yourself, I can have a member of our NinjaScript Support team assist further with suggestions on how this could be accomplished using NinjaScript.

    Please let us know if we may assist further.

      Wow! I never believed this would be such a complex request. Thanks for the heads-up.

        Hello martinmessier,

        There may be some confusion involved with the last response.

        If I set up an alert like we seen in my screenshot, it will trigger when the price touches or climbs over the EMA + 15 points.

        Some additional resources on creating alerts can be found below.

            NinjaTrader_Jim , one question though... In the configuration you show, the offset is defined at 5 arithmetic. That corresponds to 15 points?

              Hello martinmessier,

              I used a smaller value to test with the Simulated Data Feed.

              Yes, the arithmetic offset would be in points.
