Smile volume alert

I would like to set alerts that would trigger when ES 5 min volume is 20%, 30%, 40 %, 50% and so on higher than previous 5 min candle volume. I have no idea where to start. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

A great place to start would be to use the Strategy Wizard. You can see tutorials of it here: http://www.ninjatrader-support.com/H...tml?Overview34

In the Condition Builder, on the left hand side just select Price Data->Volume. Set the "Bars ago" parameter to 0. On the right hand side, select Price Data->Volume->Bars ago = 1. Then offset that by "Offset type=percent" and the offset value would be 0.20 for 20% etc. In the middle, choose your comparison choice.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight.
