CONFIGURING AUDIO ALERTS - SUPER IMPORTANT


A key part of trading by deploying bots aka Sceetos (Self-Contained-Electronic-Exchange-Trading-Orbs) is using auido alerts, based on specific order flow events, which give the trader a 'head's up' that the time may be ripe to deploy a bot.

The following graphic explains this workflow:

The following order flow indicators have embedded audio alert capabilities:

  • Book Pressure
  • Sweep
  • Tape Meter's 2 Standard Deviation Tick Ratio

When configuring these audio alerts you must place the full path file and file name into the indicators properties' "Alert File" field, for instance:Book PressureC:\Program Files (x86)\NinjaTrader 8\sounds\ES Order Book Pressure.wav

For Book Pressure, you must set a minimum threshold.  This is best done by eyeballing Book Pressure spikes on the chart that you are trading and using a value that would include the spikes but not heavy pressure.



SweepC:/Program Files (x86)/NinjaTrader 8/sounds/ES Sweep.wav

For Sweep, you must set a minimum threshold.

This is best done by eyeballing Book Pressure spikes on the chart that you are trading and using a value that would include the spikes but not heavy pressure.

If you would like to make your own custom .WAV files you can use the following 2 sites to make custom audio alerts for Sierra Chart and SceetoBots.

The first site uses IBM's Watson to create audio files using a text to speach engine.  Once you type in your text, you can download a .mp3 file.

The second site converts the mp3 file that you created into a .wav file.

Audio alerts are available for download here:

The alerts included in the zip file that you can download at the bottom of this post are for CL, ES, GC, NQ, and 6E.
