Alerts on New Bar

  1. Popup Alert
  2. Sound
  3. Email
  4. Push Notification
  • If the Popup Alert and Sound Alert are both set to true only the Popup Alert will function. For the Sound Alert to work the Popup Alert must be set to false. This is a MT4 function.
  • Any Alert set to true will fire it the chart Period (Timeframe) is changed. The same applied if MT4 is loaded and Alerts are set to true. I have not solved these problems (see here – posts #943,#944) and nor have I seen them solved for New Bar Alerts.
  • All Alerts will state Broker Time and Date.
  • New Bar Alerts can also work with most Renko and Constant Range (Synthetic) candles.

Sound (applicable only if extra sound alerts wanted)
