The TTM Trend is a licensed Study listed in Thinkorswim under the category name John Carter. For some reason the built in version does not provide audible alerts when the colors change from red to blue and back again. Well fortunately Thinkorswim provides a way to accomplish this without violating any copyright laws.

 

In this brief video you will see how the TTM Trend indicator is referenced from inside a custom study. We’ll explain how this is possible and then show you how to simply add a few lines of code to include the Alert feature.

      Well it either works or it doesn’t. And if it doesn’t that most likely means you have not setup any of the notifications settings for your platform. Top right corner: Setup –> Application Settings –> Notifications

    It seems as if the window in TOS 2020 is different than what shows up in your video in 2016. Also I can’t get the plot and the chart graph to show up in the same window. I can scroll way up and get plot but when I scroll down obviously the plot disappears. Do you have any ideas as to what is happening?

      Tough to assist without a screenshot. The only thing that comes to mind is a chart setting named “Fit studies”. It’s listed under the “General” tab of the chart settings. Uncheck that if it’s checked and see if that clears up the chart. If not, consider posting a new question in the Q&A forum were you can provide a screenshot showing what you see on your chart.
