Triggering an Alert

While applying an Indicator in the Market Scanner View user has the option of triggering an Alert. An alert will be triggered if the last traded price (LTP) crosses above or crosses below the indicator series value. This works fine for any price based indicators like SMA etc. However indicators like RSI etc which are oscillators in nature, will not work as their values do not conform with LTP. As such user can further custom code the indicator and define the alert condition. For more details please refer here

User can also override the AlertScanner(TimeSpan) method and trigger an Alert for non-price based indicators. The RSI indicator which comes natively with ArthaChitra for example, when appliend on the Market Scanner will trigger an alert (if alert is enabled) when the RSI value crosses above 70 or below 30.

User can also rearm the alert by defining a time in the option 'Rearm alert (in minute)' from the GUI. If the rearm value is set to 0 (zero) then the rearm feature will be disabled and the alert will trigger only once.
