Help Setting up custom Screen
« on: September 29, 2011, 10:37:31 am »
First - i have Zero Idea how to create the long Number that identifies the screen- I want to create a screen alert for MACD with non standard (ie 12,26,9) if possible 3,10,16 and I want to be on intraday 1 minute Candles - Can this be done and where to start - THANKS

The "long number" that you are referring to - I'm guessing that might be this as an example:

http://www.trade-ideas.com/View.php?O=200000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000_19_0&QVS1=5&MaxDNbbo=0.01&MaxDUp5=-0.1&MaxPrice=50&MaxRV=0.75&MinDUp5=0.1&MinPrice=1&MinTV=250000&MinVol1=200&WN=Huge+Move+as+Volume+Comes+In&show0=Price&show1=TV&show2=PV&show3=Up&show4=Count&show5=FOP

A quick way that we can share strategies is by using the collaboration feature.  Here's how you do it.  Load a window and right click on it - a pop-up box appears and the second option is Collaborate.  Left click it and the "long number" appears - then you can copy it and paste it in this forum for others to take a look at.

So you could take a look at the Strategy I posted here by doing this:  Left click the link and it will appear in your browser's address bar - copy the address and then when you are in TI, load a new window.  Left click the window to bring up the pop-up, select Collaborate and paste all - now you have that strategy to use.

For MACDs, these are available as alerts and these alerts implement the traditional MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) formula.  You can get a notification as soon as the MACD line crosses above or below the zero line or the signal line.  You can select the timeframe.  These alerts are based on the standard 26, 12, and 9 period EMAs.  These alerts report as soon as the value crosses, without waiting for the end of the candle.

THANKS for the info - I do know about the collaboration through the copy paste - thanks for the input.  I still have No idea on how to start writing a custom formula - since the macd can on be on standard configuration I assume other like the Bollinger Bands are the same - looking for a formula for Bollinger Bands with non standard 20,2,2 - I am looking for screen for 12,2,2 on a 1 minute chart or something that would be close would be for Current Price to be Greater than or Equal to Upper Bollinger Band - with 12,2,2 and 1 minute candles

Is this a formula and if so where would I place it
