The following article on timetotrade, written by Nick Sudbury, was featured in the Shares magazine on the 26th of October 2006:

The right software tools can pay for themselves many times over. Nick Sudbury looks at some of the main packages on the market.

To make money consistently from the markets relies on spotting viable opportunities and then getting the best entry and exit levels. Active traders in particular will need decent software tools to help them get this right. For many this means real-time news and prices, including possibly Level 2 market depth data, as well as a good charting package and some kind of alerts system.


Timetotrade is a new charting and alerting service that allows traders to stay in touch while on the move. The simple-to-use website developed by Sensatus allows members to create rule-based alerts identifying buying and selling opportunities. Once triggered, the warning can be delivered immediately to their mobile phone, email or instant messenger accounts.

Dary McGovern, MD of Sensatus, say that the majority of people who have signed up to the service are professionals with a day job, who use technical analysis to judge the timing of their entries and exits.

‘Most of the tools for retail investors assume that the person is sat in front of their computer when the trading opportunity arises - if they are away, then can miss the change’, he says. ‘Timetotrade helps people to keep in touch with what is happening when they are out and about.’

Users simply log on to the website and then call up the price chart of the security they are interested in. They are then able to select from a drop-down menu of different technical indicators and specify the trigger criteria. For example, with the Dow making new all-time highs, the RSI is moving well into overbought territory. Some with a long exposure could set an alert to be warned if and when it reaches 80, so as to give an opportunity to consider taking some money off the table.

Timetotrade supports various indicators-based alerts, including stochastics, MACD and moving average. It also allows users to monitor the actual price action. So, for instance, it is possible to have a trigger condition of a stock breaching a particular level or rising/falling by more than a certain percentage.

‘I am a big fan of support and resistance levels and this feature allows user to identify a pullback from these key prices, so that they can decide whether to close their positions,’ says McGovern.
