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.
Create an alert
To access alerts select "Create Alert".
At the "Create Alert" window, change and alter the parameters of the alert. Multiple parameters can be set for one instrument alert.
If you have the Alert sub-tab open on the bottom of the chart, press the "Create Alert" on the top right of the tab. If the Alert sub-tab is not visible, please see further in the article for instructions on how to open the sub-tab.
You can also create an alert by right-clicking on the Price Axis and selecting, "Create Alert."
To create an alert based on a study tab, right-click on the axis of the study and select "Create Alert". You will be able to specify the settings for the Study Alert from the subsequent window.
