Thinkorswim Alert High Low Version Two 11


Version Two: Intraday Alerts on New Highs and Lows

This is an upgraded version of our daily high/low alert for Thinkorswim. Improvements include the ability to control how many previous days in which the lines and chart bubbles will plot. I have also removed the high low lines from plotting outside the specified time span. Version two utilizes new techniques I have learned while assisting viewers with their own custom projects. Thinkorswim Alert High Low Version Two is intended to be plotted on an intraday chart.

 

You get to set the start time and end time and the indicator will track the highest high and lowest low throughout that time span. Each new high or new low will trigger an audible and visual alert on your chart. The time span adjustment lets you view a chart including extended hours trade while only tracking the high and low during the regular market hours.

Be sure to view the original video to see this indicator in action and understand how the alerts work.

      Yes there is a way. But once we published a video we don’t make changes unless to correct errors. Please search our Q&A forum to see if someone has already requested previous day high and low labels. And if you don’t find a post for that, go ahead and post your own question requesting it.

    Great! I’ve been trying to solve how to create TOS price alerts for the premarket and after hours, but it seems impossible. Any idea how you can do that? Thanks!

        Hi Pete!
        Thanks for your answer. I’ve been watching videos and reading the Q&A, and also searched “alerts” as a keyword. I didn’t find specifically what I’m looking for. I was hopefully looking for a workaround, because TOS alerts are not working for extended hours, only for market hours. There’s nothing when you set the alerts that will allow you to use “Extended hours” for the alert. And what I want is an alert for extended hours.

        So I take you are using a price level alert? Because you also have Study Alerts ans Scans that you can use to get alerts that trigger during extended hours trade.

      • Vale

        Yes, Pete. I’m trying to use price alerts. A simple alert to receive when the price reaches a certain level, regardless of if it is extended hours or premarket or after hours. I never thought that a study or scan alert could trigger in extended hours. Maybe that could be a workaround?

        Plenty of examples in the Q&A forum. Just focus on two topics. “Stock Scanners” and “Alerts and Notifications”. Search within those for more specific terms.

    great website! and just what i needed!

    however, ToS wont let me create a study alert, is there something i am doing wrong in this case?

    • Pete Hahn Post author

      I have no way of knowing without seeing a screenshot of what you are trying to do, and what happens when you try to set the Study Alert. You can post a request in our Q&A forum and include screenshots showing what is not working. Thanks.
