Our Price Alerts Feature enables you to highlight price levels that are of interest to you right in the Chart and to receive alerts when said levels are reached. To place a Price Alert, move your mouse cursor to the price level you would like to be alerted to, then right-click into the Chart and select Create Price Alert.
The Create Price Alert Window will open, where you can apply further settings.
It will show the Symbol and the Alert Price you have defined, as well as the Current Price of the stock, and the Distance in Dollars, to your Price Alert Level.
Below, the Direction of the necessary price move to reach the defined Price Alerts Level, based on the Current Price, is automatically listed, together with it being a Long or a Short.
Furthermore, you can define an Expiration Date and Time, on which the Price Alert will become invalid.
Alternatively, or in addition to that, you can define a Price Level that, if reached by the stock, will invalidate the current Price Alert.
To prevent your Price Alerts from triggering in the pre- and postmarket, uncheck the option Trigger Alert After Hours.
Finally, you can add some personal Notes to the Price Alert. The Notes field is very helpful since it can contain details of the trading strategy to apply, should the Price Level of the Price Alert be reached.
The bottom of the Create Price Alert Window displays a written Summary of your configured Price Alert.
After hitting Save a blue line will be placed on the Chart, indicating the Price Level of the Price Alert. Hovering over it will bring up more details about the specific Price Alert. To change the Price Level, this line can be moved via drag and drop with your mouse. To remove the current Price Alert, select the blue line with your mouse and press the Delete key on your keyboard. A popup window will ask to Confirm Deletion. Press OK to confirm or Cancel to abort the deletion.
Once the stock reaches the Alert Price, the Price Alerts Window will pop up and display details about each Price Alert. A further tutorial will discuss the Price Alerts Window in more detail.
