Alert
« on: August 06, 2014, 02:38:42 pm »
Just wondering, why your alerts don't work.
I have numerous examples of windows with a symbol list attached and alert definitions, only to find out, there are a number of stocks that meant the criteria,
but do-not show up in the alert window.
Why?
here is an example from today: http://www.trade-ideas.com/View.php?O=4000000000000018008000020_41D_0&QNLPF=1&QFGDR=65&QFGUR=65&MaxGUP=-2&MinGUP=2&MinPrice=5&WN=Gaps+%3e+2+%25&SL=31&show0=D_Symbol&show1=D_Type&show2=D_Time&show3=D_Desc&show4=Price&show5=GUP&show6=RV&col_ver=1
I removed any windows specific filters and ran it wide open.
Didn't show BRCM for example, that certainly met the criteria for crossed daily lows support
COF another one, EXPE, HPQ and others.

I had an opportunity to pull up BRCM, EXPE and COF.  All the these stocks did NOT trade down on the 6th.  They gapped down and proceeded to trade up.  These examples will not trigger the crossed below resistance alert.




Also, the stocks you mentioned did not gap up or down at least 2%.

If you would like to describe the exact strategy you are looking for, we can help you build it.
