//| This indicator will draw two trendlines on the chart upon which  |
//| it is placed. The trendlines, which may be moved around, act as  |
//| upper and lower alert levels. When the mid-price crosses either  |
//| level the warning alert will be triggered.                       |
//|                                                                  |
//| Version 1.2 - 25 Jul 2011                                        |
//| Added mode flag to get only a single alert per time bar          |
//| Added email flag to send email as well as audio/visual alert     |
//| Added flag to select line type (trendline or horizontal)         |
//| Added setting to specify line width                              |
//| Added TidyOnExit flag to remove trendlines from chart upon exit  |
//|                                                                  |

//| Choose the symbol you're interested in and display it in a chart |
//| window at the appropriate timeframe. Load PriceAlert Indicator   |
//| and optionally choose desired colour for each trendline.         |
//| Optionally set flag to receive single or multiple alerts per     |
//| time bar and flag to send email with each alert. (You must have  |
//| previously configured your email details.)                       |
//| Reposition the trendlines to the level at which you wish to be   |
//| notified should the mid-price get there.                         |
