Setting Alerts Clunky/Not intutitive or user friendly

Question

For future update can there be options to edit the specific price of a horizontal trend line? As an example if I want to set a horizontal trendline at $30.65 I have to try to drag and drop it which takes way too long and never seems to me spot on... I use horizontal trendlines to create specific alerts and there is no efficient way to do these kinds of alerts in Medved. Also, using the alert tool for a specific price does not show the alert within the chart so it's not very useful.

For an example look at Think or Swims alerts/anchoring ability..

 

I hope this is possible and can be included in a future update.

 

Kindly,

 

Sean

Maybe I am missing something but what exactly do they have that is easier? You can draw a horizontal line on MT chart and change it to alert, or just draw the alert line right away if you first select it. (hold the SHIFT to force it horizontal).  you can drag it up/down after drawing - same as in TOS.

You can type in a specific price on TOS whether it be an alert line or horizontal line and  the price I type will be the anchor point. Dragging the alert line in Medved is not that accurate (pegging a specific price to the penny)...  Ideally It would be awesome to right click on a horizontal line and type in the anchor price (this kind of functionality is available in most other platforms). 

Using the alert editor/creator in Medved you can set an alert at a specific price but there is no indication on the chart that there is an alert set... So you must compare the alert list with a chart/name.

I can illustrate it later this evening if that would be helpful.

So if we add a parameter to the line (only if it is horizontal) where you can type in the price, that would do it?

Yeah I think that would work great! 

Out of curiosity how come when setting alerts in the alert window (Price crossing xx amount as an example) there isn’t some kind of indication on the chart? 
 

thanks for your time

for regular alerts, there are lots of different alert types, not just plain price target. You can also have global or portfolio level alerts, so each symbol can in effect have lots of different alerts that would clutter the chart. Plus showing many of the alert types would be a problem.
