SMS Text Message Alerts Come to Think or Swim!

The day is finally here! Via ToS, here’s how to get alerts sent as a text message to your mobile phone by SMS:

Last but not least, we have expanded our capacity to deliver notifications such as order fills and alerts directly via text message to your mobile phone. (Prospectus says: Note that iOS users can get push alerts from the Mobile Trader app now as well.)

To activate this functionality, go to the Notifications tab of the “Application Settings” menu.
Click “Set up a Confirmed Number” and follow the instructions on the screen
Once your mobile number has been confirmed, simply check the box to “Send SMS During
US Market Hours” for any notification type that you would like to receive


There you go!

    Hi, could you revise your open range indicator to include globex range, i.e. from previous day 18:00 to 9:00 range. Many thanks.

    It’s impressive that you are getting ideas from this paragraph as well as from our argument made at this place.

    I noticed you didn’t update TOS scripts since 2010, did you stop coding?

  6. Prospectus Says:

    I’m still here. Haven’t gotten to coding projects for a long while though. I just got Excel installed back on my Mac so I can get back to work.

    Great to know you are back to update those great indicators. I’m looking forward to seeing your update. If you have interests in what would be great for advanced trading, I would like to add two indicators which are not yet available in TOS, One is Mark Fisher’s ACD method, I would like to see an indicator which could be modified from OR_Shaded to have sound alert when A up/down or C up/down is confirmed with predefined amount A and C level. The other indicator would be Tom Demark’s indicator for setup counter which is currently available in ninjatrader but not yet available in TOS. Thanks in advance.

    Is there a way in TOS to output from ThinkScript to a text file?

  9. Prospectus Says:

    Not that I know of.
