sentinel is not accepting new alert


#1

When I put the alert condtion to alert me when the last traded price is less then the value of the previous low it says that the condition is already met though I have entered the price value correctly.


#2

What’s the alert you are trying to create?


#3

when I put a general alert last traded price of a share is less than/ higher than a particular vale it says that the condition is already met . The condition might have already met in the past. But I am putting the condition with the present market condition and I am not able to put the condition as I get the above message


#4

You have not answered my query. When I put a general alert or an advanced trigger after market hours the alert is not accepted and it says that the trigger condition is already met. I am putting the alert for the next day market condition and the trigger condition might have already met in todays market or previous market which is immaterial for me. Say I put a condition

LastTradedPrice(‘NSE:HDFCBANK’@)> OpenPrice(’@HDFCBANK)+5

It might have necessarily met during the concluded market hours but i want it to be executed the next market day.

In that case, you will have to use a “Date function”. In this case:

LastTradedPrice('NSE:HDFC') > OpenPrice('NSE:HDFC')+5 && Timestamp() > DateString('2018-12-05')


#6

Again there is an error message when I put an alert as under :
LastTradedPrice(‘NSE:HCLTECH’)>LowPrice(‘NSE:HCLTECH’)+1 && DateString(‘2018-12-03’)

as Value ‘1.5437754e+09’ cannot be used with the logical operator ‘&&’, it is not a bool


#7

Try this:
LastTradedPrice(‘NSE:HCLTECH’)>LowPrice(‘NSE:HCLTECH’)+1 && Timestamp() = DateString(‘2018-12-03’)


#8

it is not accepting the alert message and logs out without any message


#9

Just copy past this trigger “LastTradedPrice(‘NSE:HDFC’) > OpenPrice(‘NSE:HDFC’)+5 && Timestamp() > DateString(‘2018-12-05’)” and just change the date. You are getting this error because you are incorrectly using the time functions.


#10

Still the same error is coming. It is getting logged out. I tried after market hours again the same result
LastTradedPrice(‘NSE:INFY’)> OpenPrice(‘NSE:INFY’)+5 && Timestamp()>DateString(‘2018-12-3’)


#11

But it has accepted the same without date stamp for

LastTradedPrice(‘NSE:HCLTECH’)>OpenPrice(‘NSE:HCLTECH’) +2

Please clarify


#12

That’s because the condition was unmet at the time of you creating the alert.


#13

My question is not answered properly. .The alert with time stamp and date is not accepted and the system logs out. for example
LastTradedPrice(‘NSE:HCLTECH’)>LowPrice(‘NSE:HCLTECH’)+ 5 &&Timestamp () == DateString(‘2018-12-03’)

The alert without time stamp and date is accepted selectively for some cases. My question is when I put alert for the purpose of next day after market hours say 4 -5pm the alert shows the trigger condition is already met which is applicable for the current date which is already over and I am putting the alert for the next day. Then you suggested applying time stamp which does not work and the system logs out or give error message.
