Let's say we have two indicators, they are 50SMA/200SMA crossabove and RSI oversold, how to determine which one is triggered first?

Thanks

If you are using, as most folks seem to do, the CLOSE price for a candle then the indicators both fire at the close of the candle and both trigger simultaneously. Of course, ToS does have some order of execution based on the order indicators are in in the 'edit studies' window, but I couldn't specify which way it goes (top down or bottom up).

If it is really important, put a different alert sound on each indicator and listen to see which sound ToS plays first. Try changing the order in the Edit Studies box and see if the sounds change.
