9 Count Lower Indicator


New member
Would someone please help me create a scanner with mobile alerts?

Someone shared the 9 Count indicator with me but is there a way to create a mobile alert when the red or green arrow appears? Thank you in advance.

declare lower;

def SetUpCount = CompoundValue(1, if close > close[4]
                 then SetUpCount[1] + 1
                 else if close < close[4]
                 then 0
                 else SetUpCount[1], 1);

def Count = if SetUpCount == 0 or
                SetUpCount == SetUPCount[1]
               or setupcount > 9
            then double.nan
             else SetUpCount;

def SetUpCount2 = CompoundValue(1, if close < close[4]
                 then SetUpCount2[1] - 1
                 else if close > close[4]
                 then 0
                 else SetUpCount2[1], 1);

def Count2 = if SetUpCount2 == 0 or
                SetUpCount2 == SetUPCount2[1]
               or setupcount2 > 9
            then double.nan
             else SetUpCount2;

plot countline = if setupcount > 8 then 9 else if setupcount2 < -8 then -9 else if setupcount > 0 then setupcount else if setupcount2 < 0 then setupcount2 else 0;

plot zero = 0;
plot nine = 9;
plot neg_nine = -9;

plot dwnarrw = if countline[-1] crosses below 9 then 9 else double.nan;
plot uparrw = if countline[-1] crosses above -9 then -9 else double.nan;

alert(uparrw crosses above -9, "", Alert.Bar, Sound.Bell);
alert(dwnarrw crosses above 9, "", Alert.Bar, Sound.Bell);

# Alerts
Alert(uparrw, " ", Alert.Bar, Sound.Chimes);
Alert(dwnarrw, " ", Alert.Bar, Sound.Bell);
# End Code

@tommylala You can simply create a scan that references this Study and check for either plot dwnarrw or plot uparrw is true and then creating an Alert based on the results of the scan so you will be alerted whenever a symbol is added to or, optionally removed from, the list...

Thank you @rad14733
I am not good with coding or creating things on TOS. I tried what you were referring to. Would you kindly let me know if this is correct?

@rad14733 I've been scanning for the past weeks and I didn't get an alert when the green up arrow appeared. I don't think the alert is working.

Do you have any recommendations?

this is strange. I checked again but the green arrow disappeared. If the arrow was showing for yesterday, then it disappeared today when price went down. I am not sure what is happening.
