Email and SMS Alerts

You can receive the alerts from your Alert Window as an email or SMS text notification.

This service is, however, not intended as a replacement for our main product and is currently in beta.

The Email or SMS will contain at most 10 stock symbols, and you will typically not get more than 3 messages per hour. It works well for strategies with a very limited number of alerts.

To set up Email or SMS notifications head to the Email/Text Messaging section of your Account Management page.


Email Address

First, enter the email address you would like to receive notifications to in the email address field, then press Update:

To receive an SMS to your cell phone, an Email to SMS gateway is required. Contact your cell phone provider for more information.

Add Strategies

You can configure up to 9 strategies. To add a new strategy, select Create New:

Message Title and Message Body:

Next, enter the Title and Body your email notifications will carry. In an SMS message Title and Body will be combined.

Each field can contain a combination of normal text and special codes from the list below.

So as an example, to receive an email notification like this:

You would enter the following text and code:


This code will insert the Alert Window's name.


This code will insert the stock symbol which set off the alert. In some cases this might be a list of up to 10 stock symbols.


This code will insert a hyperlink containing more information about the alerts. The notification itself only entails a limited amount of data. This hyperlink will allow you to see all alerts, including some which you might have missed, since the email or text notification will contain at most 10 stock symbols, and you will typically not get more than 3 messages per hour. On the linked page, the information about the alerts will be at the top of the page. The remainder of the page will contain the standard Email / SMS configuration options.


This code is similar to ~c, but the web page is optimized for a web browser on a mobile phone.


This code will be replaced by a single tilde. For example, if you set the body of your message to "~w" you will see the window name in your email message. But if you set the body to "~~w", then you will see exactly "~w" in your email message.

Finally, you will need to import you Alert Window with a Collaborate Link.

To do so, right-click into your scan, and select Collaborate. Choose Copy All, then paste this code into the Collaborate Link field.

Enable Strategy

To enable/disable Email/SMS notifications for your strategy, move the slider next to your strategy from left to right or vice versa.

When disabled, the slider button will be green, when disabled the slider button will be white.

Each strategy is only allowed to send one email or SMS every 20 minutes. This will protect you in case you accidentally use a strategy which produces a lot of alerts.


The name and setting of your Alert Window will automatically be displayed under Settings.

The settings column allows you to see a graphical summary of your strategy.

Move your cursor over an icon and hover to see the minimum/maximum settings of the corresponding alert or filter.
