Help with an alert
« on: July 23, 2013, 01:35:29 pm »
Hi,

I need help with this strategy please:

Stocks that trade below the first 5 min low and then reverse and trade above the hi of the day. I'm looking for an alert when the stock makes a hi of day and that hi is at least a 2 day hi.
Ex. JNPR on 7/23/13... the alert should trigger at 9:45 when JNPR trades above the hi of the day.

Hi Lj .. at this point, I don't think it can be done because the opening 5 min range break is not available as a filter but I believe it is something they are looking to add.  If they do add it, a 2 day high alert would be easy to set up.

As a stopgap until - if - they add the filter, you could always set up an alert window for the 5 min range break, copy those symbols into a symbol list and then have another alert window just monitor that symbol list and alert on a 2 day high.
