Ya, what can I say.

I like to putter around while the pc slogs it out with the market. But I also like to know when stuff happens. So I write alarms into the EA.

Here's a few to start with:

oh crap: <a href='https://www.myfxbook.com/files/Elkart/RTFireAlarm.wav' target='_blank'>RTFireAlarm.wav</a>

banking: <a href='https://www.myfxbook.com/files/Elkart/CashRegisterCha.wav' target='_blank'>CashRegisterCha.wav</a>

and of course TP: <a href='https://www.myfxbook.com/files/Elkart/Applause.wav' target='_blank'>Applause.wav</a>

all you need to do is save those to the 'sounds' directory in Mt4 and the put this line into the code:

PlaySound('Applause.wav');

Or whatever sound you want. I once did a rock song, but it kept on waking me up. Nothing like Metallica 2 am...

I was looking for a Roman legion, or Braveheart kind of battle speech for positions entry and a Moscow Communist era public announcement for a margin call or other significant event, but been unable to find them.

Russia of course had the ultimate margin call. The whole country got closed out.

Well, not going to help if we play the sound of ' Bambi in the forest' or 'Monk looking at turtle'. Needs to be something you can hear.

choose the jennifer voice - it's just too funny! it's like in the futuristic movies with the super computer..

not you can create some phrases like:

take profit - https://say.expressivo.com/6L2f3WSr

stop loss - https://say.expressivo.com/hi8gS1ML

margin call - https://say.expressivo.com/8lGZbEnd
