    How To Add Multiple cBots To a Single Chart?

    It is possible to add multiple MA Alert cBots to a single chart and configure it for different timeframes and when you first attach the cBot to a chart it will default to the chart timeframe, but if you want to use a 4-hour MA Alert cBot on a 1-hour chart all you need to do is set the "Use Timeframe" parameter to YES.


    How Do You Set-Up The Alerts?

    Setting up the alerts is simple, you just click on one of the icon buttons from the MA Alert Panel and you will see the alert configuration panel, from here you can set the alert condition, what message you want to have sent and the type of message to use. Re-Arm Alerts: When the alert condition occurs, you do not want to have multiple messages each time, for example, the MA crosses above and below the price.

    Multi-Timeframe Alerts

    You can run multiple MA widgets at the same time with different timeframes so that when for example the 1 hr, 4 hr, 8 hr, 12 hr and daily MA is above the symbol price you will receive an alert for each crossing.


    Multi-Symbol Multi-Timeframe Alerts

    You can run multiple MA widgets each with different symbols, MA types, periods and timeframes to get a full picture of what is happening in the markets within seconds of it happening, no more flicking through the charts every few minutes looking at the different symbols and moving average types.


    How The Re-Arm Feature Works

    The rea-arm feature helps prevent false alarms, this is when the price and the moving average values cross up and down many times until it finally decides to stay above or below In order to prevent you from getting multiple alerts only a single alert is sent when the first cross happens and the re-arm value is the time the system waits before sending a new signal. The value should always be small on a lower timeframe, so if you are using a 1-hour timeframe set it to about 5 minutes.


    Message Settings Panel

    The settings panel allows you to configure and test your Telegram, SMS and email services to make sure they are set up correctly.
