You can also quickly backtest your alert based trading strategies.
The following provides an example of how some of these alerts can be set up using timetotrade. The best part is that you don't need to know how to code or use complicate user interfaces to do it - just point and click using the Timetotrade Trigger Trading Technology™.

How to Create RSI Alerts
To create an alert, go to the timetotrade CHARTS page >> , and enter the ticker symbol for the stock or currency pair you wish to follow. Use the chart settings to add the RSI chart and adjust the RSI parameters.
You can adjust the default period and interval parameter values to find the best fit between price movement and the RSI indicator. The default period setting is RSI (14), but you can change the period to suit your trading preferences using the chart settings.
To the bottom left hand side of timetotrade's price and technical charts are sets of "Alert Trigger Buttons":
To create an RSI Alert, just click the Alert Trigger button in the bottom left of the RSI chart. There are no programming languages to learn, no macros or complex formulas for you to write. Just click a button, enter your parameters, "add the trigger" and "activate" and your alert is created. Simple!
The following types of RSI Alert Triggers are available on the timetotrade system for creating your own alerts:
Rising RSI Alerts
To create an alert that will be triggered and notify you, or execute trades, when the RSI rises above a certain value, just click the RSI "Rising Threshold" Trigger button as shown below.
This opens up a text box on the RSI chart.
Step 1: Input the value you wish to be notified the RSI has risen above, eg 70
Step 2: Click the "add trigger" button:
The alert condition will then appear in the "Alert Creation" box on the right hand side of the chart page. Here you can customise the alert to suit you: for example you can personalise the alert message you will receive, decide how you would like to be notified and where you would like the alert sent. You can choose to have the alert sent to your email and/or mobile phone.
Step 3: Click the "activate" button
And that's it! Your alert is set up. It really is that simple.
The next time the RSI rises above, eg 70 you will be notified by an alert sent to your email or cell phone.
Falling RSI Alerts
To create an alert that will be triggered and notify you, or execute trades, when the RSI falls below a certain value, just click the RSI "Falling Threshold" Trigger button as shown below:
As in the previous example, input the value you would like to be alerted that the RSI has fallen below, (eg 30) and customise and "activate" your alert as previously described. The next time the RSI falls below your specified value, you will be notified by an alert sent to your email or mobile phone.
RSI Break-Out Alerts
To create an alert that will be triggered to notify you, or execute trades, when the RSI increases by a certain amount, just click the RSI "Break-Out" Trigger button as shown below, input the value you wish to see the RSI increase by, and customise the alert to suit.
Remember to click the "activate" button. The next time the RSI increases by your specified value, you will receive an alert to your email or mobile phone.
RSI Pull-Back Alerts
To create an alert that will be triggered and notify you, or execute trades, when the RSI decreases by a certain value, just click the RSI "Pull-Back" Trigger button as shown below, input the value you wish to see the RSI fall by, customise and "activate" the alert.
The next time the RSI decreases by your specified value, you will receive an alert to your email or mobile phone.
RSI Oversold Change of Trend Alert
Multiple RSI triggers can be combined to create an alert. For example an alert can be created to provide a notification of when the RSI is oversold below 30 following by a breakout change of trend forming a V.
Start by adding a threshold alert trigger to test for the RSI falling below 30:
Then add a break out alert trigger to identify when RSI increases by at least 3:
Sequence the alerts as the first requirement is for RSI to fall below 30 and then we want RSI to increase by at least 3 as illustrated:

Activate the alert and the next time your RSI Oversold Chart conditions are met, you will be notified. You can also back test your RSI alerts to check that they have been set up correctly and test trading strategies.

RSI Trading Strategies
You can use TimeToTrade to execute trades when your Trigger Trading™ alert conditions have been met. For example, an order can be created to sell 100,000 GBPUSD when your RSI alert trigger conditions have been met, with a take profit order if the price decreases by 20 points / pips and a stop loss if the price increases by 10 points as per the following example:
TimeToTrade can also be used to create alerts on Price and Volume as well as the technical indicators such as Stochastic, RSI, Bollinger Bands and Moving Averages plus a lot more. You can also create alerts on your own Custom Indicators.
Once you are familiar with creating basic alerts you can use TimeToTrade's advanced features to customise your alerts to suit you. You can build compound alerts containing multiple trigger conditions against price and multiple technical indicators; for example: you could set up an alert to notify you, or execute a trade, when the price falls below a defined value followed by the stochastic increasing above 20 and then a positive MACD crossover:
You can also edit the alert message you will receive and be notified by Email and SMS text messages when your alert trigger conditions are met.

Check Alert Triggers at Interval Close or on Each Tick During the Interval
Alerts can be set up to check if the trigger condition has been met at the end of an interval or on each tick during the interval. When creating alerts, click on the alert trigger and set the 'Check trigger when' field to 'interval closes' or 'on each tick during the interval' to change the behaviour.
For example if you wanted to check if the Close Price at the end of a 15 minute interval rises above 1.5, select 'interval closes' as illustrated:
If however you wanted to check for example if the hourly RSI falls below 30 and want to get an alert if that happens during the 1 hour interval, rather than checking at the close of the 1 hour interval, check the alert trigger 'on each tick during the interval' as illustrated:
