Technical indicator alerts

You never need to miss a trading opportunity with our technical indicator alerts.

We’ve introduced new platform features to enhance your trading experience – technical indicator email and SMS alerts. When you set technical indicators – including Moving Averages, MACDs and RSIs – and if your conditions are met, you’ll get a pop-up notification on the platform, and you can now opt in for an email and free text message.

Please note that you must register your mobile number in the ‘My Account’ section before you can select the SMS alert option.

  1. Set an indicator on your chart, then click the orange alert symbol
  2. Set your chart resolution and price (bid, ask or mid) and choose your indicator type
  3. Place up to three conditions on your alert
  4. Choose to be alerted immediately or at the end of the candlestick
