Hello Pete, I’m slowly learning thinkscript etc. and have put together a script for a column in watchlists. It’s intensive I know but it works Mostly! 🙂 It monitors 5 minutes of volume compared to avgvol. The part that doesn’t work is the alert I put into it. Essentially I am thinking the alert should pop up and ring for any stock the watchlist that has a sudden increase over the last 5 minutes. Yet, the alert never happens, (it’s set in the code for vavd > 350), even though I’m watching the values on a stock break that barrier. I would appreciate your feedback on this issue! Below is the code.
plot vavd = ((vav – vavg)/vavg)*100;
def rng1 = vavd > 350;
Alert(vavd > 350, “5 Minute Volume Increase! : ” + vavd, alert.BAR, Sound.Ring);
Thank You In Advance!
