i have a custom study that plots arrows is it possible to create a indicator that alerts me anytime these arrow are generated on my chart ?as a separate indicator THAT works as this function only. i know i can simply have these arrows coded to give sound alerts but im look for a separate indicator to do this as its only function.

A chart alert typically gives you audible alerts, with the proviso that the chart mist be open
When that happens the info is also placed in your message center

Now if you want an "indicator" that alerts you whenever the audible alert would have gone off, you'd need to use Marketwatch alerts. Those types of alerts can send SMS and email you but you will need to create a platform study alert in Marketwatch -> Alerts for every symbol you’d like to be alerted on.

Remember - chart Study Alerts do not send SMS or emails. MarketWatch Alerts do. MarketWatch Alerts have to be individually set
