Alerts are used to notify a trader when an instrument trades at a certain price or volume. The alert will play a sound notification and/or send an email and can be configured to close an open active position.

At the "Create Alert" window, change and alter the parameters of the alert. Multiple parameters can be set for one instrument alert.
