The Alert Builder is a new feature where users can create conditional alerts that will only fire off when multiple criteria have been met. Users can create what conditions they want by changing each of the “Steps” in the settings under “Alert Builder”. Once all the sequence of steps is completed in order without interruption, a final alert will be sent.

What are Steps?

Steps are made up of 3 sections, the DIRECTION, ACTION, and TIMEFRAME.

Step 1 [DIRECTION] [ACTION] uses Time Frame [TIMEFRAME]


- Bullish

- Bearish


- Internal - Is true every time internal structure is bullish/bearish (what you’ve chosen above as your direction)

- BOS Internal - is true on each Internal Break of Structure

- CHoCH Internal - is true on each Internal Change of Character

- Swing - Is true every time swing structure is bullish/bearish (what you’ve chosen above as your direction)

- BOS Swing - is true on each Swing Break of Structure

- CHoCH Swing - is true on each Swing Change of Character

- Inside OB - is true when price has entered an Order Block.

Time Frame

Chart - Chart is the Time Frame you are currently viewing, listed next to the Symbol Name at the top left of the TradingView Window

2 - This is the second Timeframe you have selected at the top of the settings

3 - This is the third Timeframe you have selected at the top of the settings

Timeframe settings

Timeframe 1 = Chart = 1HR

Timeframe 2 = 4H

Timeframe 3 = Daily

Step 1 [Bullish] [Inside OB] using Time Frame [2]

Step 1 will pass when price is inside a Bullish 4H Order Block

Once Step 1 is complete, it will look for Step 2

Step 2 [Bullish] [CHoCH Internal] using Time Frame [Chart]

Step 2 will pass when price creates a 1HR CHoCH

Once both Step 1 and 2 (Step 3 is off) are complete, the indicator will send an alert
