Hello, thanks to everyone for sharing your expertise in this forum. Greatly appreciate the same.

I am using the below code which I took from user STB (that post is flagged for no more replies) for scalping futures. Thanks for the code. Is it possible to add an audio alert to the code? Can someone please help me.

@STB has not been seen for a while. As he is not available to provide support for his strategy, the thread has been closed.

Join useThinkScript to post your question to a community of 21,000+ developers and traders.

I think the first step is to plot arrows for the trades...

I would think something like

def sell_TO_OPEN = secondsTillTime(zoneStartAM) <= 0 && secondsTillTime(zoneEndAM) >= 0 and adspdl < adspdl[1] && close < vwap && vwap<vwap[1]&& volume>volume[1];

sell_TO_OPEN.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.Arrow_Down);


I am not near my PC, so just copy pasted it. See if it works, then will have to inverse for long. Kindly share if you get it to work.
