This Study script has the same default settings as the Strategy script and its only purpose is to provide alerts for the long and short signals the Strategy generates. Obviously, if you want to generate alerts based on a Strategy backtest, please ensure the settings are the same in the Study as in the Strategy.
For illustration, I have plotted arrows on the chart for long and short signals, and also colored the background to show when the function determines a choppy/sideways market.
There are 2 alerts set up:
- Long Entry
- Short Entry
- Green arrow = Long Entry
- Red arrow = Short Entry
- White background = No short trades
- Aqua background = No long trades
EXAMPLE USE CASE
1. Open a Bitcoin/USD chart on 1D timeframe.
2. Open this script and the Super Trend 2.0 indicator script.
3. Backtest with the Strategy Backtester and change the settings if you like until you get a desirable outcome for your own purposes.
4. Once you are happy with the backtest, change the settings in the Alerts script (this one) so they match the Strategy settings.
5. Set up the alerts according to your preferences.
