so is there a way to set up a scan that can alert you when the price hits the 61.8 fib level?

I have the swingARM scanner (https://usethinkscript.com/threads/...railing-stop-and-fibonacci-retracements.2486/)
and also the bull and bear scan (https://usethinkscript.com/threads/...op-and-fibonacci-retracements.2486/post-29434)
but want to know if there is a way to have a single scan for fib level 1 (which is 61.8) . so when the price hits that value, it can pop up the ticker in my scanning watchlist. likewise I think I can make that scanner in to bullish or bearish scanner with slight modifications or conditions.
but cant figure out how to get a trigger alert for stock on 30 mins chart or 1 hr to alert when price hits it.

i don't have a problem setting up a watchlist scan. the issue is specific scan coding in TOS.
I use the swing arm fib levels with trailing ATR. and want to get help in setting up a scan that can show stocks on a given time period when price hits the 61.8 fib level.....
https://ibb.co/g6SwcdP
here is a screenshot.... with possible alert areas when the price hits the yellow 61.8 fib level

Is there a SwingArm Scan that can scan for stocks that are trading above certain time frames. For example I want to scan for stocks that are trading above the Daily, 4HR, 1Hr SwingArms? Thanks in advance.

can some point me to swingarm_fib scans page

I imported the SWINGARM Strategy using this link:
• SWINGARM MULTI TIMEFRAME LINK UPDATE
It shows "SWINGARM TRACKER 30 min & 1 min Entry". How do I change this to DAY TRADING TRACKER like in the video by Jose please?

In the YouTube SWINGARM Tutorial, Jose mentions he always uses @BenTen's Daily Trend Momentum Indicator to gauge market direction. Where can I find link/code for this indicator please?

It is not clear what you are asking for.
Sounds like something you may have to post a picture of to explain what you are trying to accomplish along with a more detailed explanation.
Unsure of how to upload screenshots to the forum, Here are directions.

Where it says DAY TRADING STRATEGY, my Swing Arm Indicator says SWINGARM TRACKER. I want the DAY TRADING STRATEGY like in Jose's video:
How do I make that selection in the Indicator?
Thanks
Manohar

The OP of the SwingArm is no longer on the forum. So it is not possible to answer your question.
His website is: https://blackflagfuturestrading.com/ I don't know if he is still offering free support for it.
