Total newbie here....unfortunately, not getting a lot of assistance from StockCharts "support" team, redirected to links/videos already seen and still having difficulties. They've moved onto suggesting I post questions here.
Unfortunately, not even sure of the "Category" for this post, since it doesnt state "Alerts" - so hopefully I am in the right area.
Basically, I have created SCANS and CHARTLISTS...and can SCAN (find specific stocks with 5-ish criteria, then am able to SEE CHARTS of the SCANNED stock queries 10 per page.
Thus, so far, so good!!! This is helpful.
However, the ultimate goal and objective of my joining and trying StockCharts, was to develop a simple indicator pattern, then be "Alerted" when the indicators cross one another. Basically, I have 3 indicator lines...
Referred to in my "training" materials, called out as "hourly" chart indicator lines.
Essentially, what I have found is that they are just SMAs, identified as:
#1 of 13hr/BLUE
#2 of 30hr/RED
#3 of 200hr/GREEN
SMA lines on the Charts.
Its working and I can see them fine.
But, my initial (say this, because I am sure I'd like to "refine" it later), desire is to be ALERTED specifically when the 13hr/BLUE and 30hr/RED lines cross, either direction (13hr/BLUE appears to indicate upwards/higher candles while atop the 30hr/RED indicator, and vice-versa, 13hr/BLUE below, demonstrating a downwards/lower candles when below the 30hr/RED)!
Simple...I would imagine, if I knew what I was doing...and I cannot figure out how to get this done.
Hence, this post.
Can ANYONE/SOMEONE provide me some samples/examples that I can use, or provide some guidance on how to do so?
How to setup StockCharts to run the SCANS against my SCAN criteria, display the SCAN results with specific ChartList indicators - and upon these indicators crossing (the 13hr/BLUE and 30hr/RED) one another, either direction...trigger a notification/alert to me.
I mean...I dont want to spend hours, days or week..."trying" to get this working, only to find out it cant/wont work.
I'd rather cut my losses (so far, this entire week), and move onto alternative solutions if I cannot get this to work soon.
Thank you very much in advance for any assistance, guidance or direction provided.
