TradingView Alerts Setup

This guide is to assist you in setting up your TradingView Alerts. We will show you how to send test alerts followed by options on generating your alerts. We recommend all users to use the "automatic input" method in Section 3 due to its scalability.

Please refer to "Syntax", the way alert messages are to be phrased, in conjunction with this guide.

Section 2: Manual Input of TradingView messages

If you have your own TradingView/Pine Script strategy/study, please jump to Section 3.

Description Remarks
1 On the symbol and timeframe you would like to trade, create an alert with the following:

Condition: Choose the script you would like to use.  

Options: Choose the appropriate option. (We recommend once per bar close to avoid repainting issues)  

Message: Input your message according to PineConnector's syntax. You may find the syntax guide HERE.

2 Your alerts will now trigger each time conditions are met, with the message you have hard-coded.

Unfortunately, you will have to manually add alerts on every symbol, timeframe and direction (long/short). If you have 25 symbols and 2 directions, you will have to create 50 alerts and manually key in your messages. Therefore, we recommend automatic inputs found in Section 3 below.

Section 4: Automatic Input and Multiple Concurrent Symbols (Advanced)

Description Remarks
With the sample script, you can only have a max 8 symbols supporting both long and short alerts. This is due to 40 security call limit per script. If your system has a set SL and TP (i.e. same number of pips), you will be able to have even more symbols for that one alert.

Important Note:
1. Too many alertstriggering in a short space of time will result in your alert being halted. This is a safety feature by TradingView.
2. Security function has a reputation for repainting. Use code at your own risk. To learn more about the security() function, read it HERE.
