3.1 Introduction to TradingView alerts
TradingView alerts are notifications that can be set up based on specific conditions or events on the price chart, indicators, or strategies. They allow traders to receive real-time updates when certain criteria are met. These alerts can be visual, audible, or sent via email or SMS. By using alerts, traders can stay informed about market movements without constantly monitoring their charts, allowing for more efficient trading.
3.2 Autoview syntax basics
Autoview syntax is a set of commands that translate TradingView alerts into orders on your connected exchange. The syntax comprises various elements, such as order type, price, quantity, and other parameters. Here are some basic components of Autoview syntax:
e: Exchange (e.g., e=binance)
s: Trading pair symbol (e.g., s=BTCUSDT)
b: Order action (e.g., b=buy or b=short)
t: Order type (e.g., t=market or t=limit)
q: Quantity (e.g., q=1 or q=10%)
p: Price (e.g., p=50 or p=-25 or p=-1%)[current price + value]
To create an Autoview command, you will combine these elements in the alert message box on TradingView. For example, a basic market order to buy 1 BTC on Binance would look like this:
e=binance s=BTCUSDT b=buy t=market q=1

3.4 Examples of common alert setups
Here are some examples of common alert setups using Autoview syntax:
Buy 1 BTC at a limit price of $200 below the current price on Binance:
Alert Condition: Last price Greater Than 0
e=binance s=BTCUSDT b=buy t=limit p=-200 q=1
Sell 0.5 BTC when the RSI crosses above 70 on Coinbase Pro:
Alert Condition: RSI(14) crossing above 70
e=coinbasepro s=BTCUSD b=sell t=market q=0.5
Place a stop-loss order to sell 1 ETH when the price falls below $2,500 on Kraken:
Alert Condition: Last price crossing below $2,500
e=tradovate s=MNQH3 b=sell px=2500 t=market q=1
Remember to customize the commands based on your specific trading strategy, desired order parameters, and supported exchanges.
