Understanding the Post-market Highs Alert

Post-market highs show the highest prices since the market closed. This only includes the post-market prints, which are not part of the normal highs.

You can filter this alert the same way as other highs, with one difference. We start counting the number of days from today's close. So a value of 1 day means that the high was higher than today's high, but not higher than the previous day's high. If that same print had happened before the market closed, it would have generated an alert with a value of 0 days.

Default Settings

By default, this alert appears when a stock's price exceeds its previous post-market high during this time.

Custom Settings

For 'Post-market Highs' alerts, you have the option to use an alert specific filter. This filter is located immediately to the right of the corresponding alert and is always optional. You can decide to leave it blank if you want to receive more alerts, or you can fill it in to restrict the number of alerts you receive.

This filter allows you to specify the quality of the alert. When you set a higher number for this filter, you are telling the alerts server to display only alerts that meet a higher quality standard, resulting in fewer alerts being shown.
