    Hey guys,

    I'd like something that scans the major currency pairs around the clock and alert my cell phone any time my set up is met. How do I do that?

    I think what I want is pretty simple. I want an SMA pointing up and a breakout bar, say closing 5% above the close of the previous bar. And I'd like it if this bar had an increase in volume compared to the previous bar.

    It doesn't need to place any trades, simply send me an email or text when the criteria is met. I want it to refresh every 5 min if it will sync with the new bars, if not every minute.

    What software could do this and what if any script will I need?

    Thanks!

    I believe you can create that as an indicator or an expert advisor for MetaTrader 5 using the built-in MQL Wizard feature. Run MQL Editor from MT5 (press F4) and then use File->New->Expert Advisor (generate).

    Excellent. I'm getting my new internet installed Monday so I have to wait until then to download MT5 but I will let you know how that worked. Thank you!
