Stock Alerts: Alert Trigger Buttons

Each Alert Trigger has a different function and alerts can be created for price, trend line and technical analysis indicators. If you hover your mouse over the Alert Trigger buttons on the CHART page, a brief description of the Alert Trigger will be displayed.


The following provides an over view of the different Alert Trigger types:


Alert Trigger Buttons: Description
Trend Line Triggers.png Trend Line Triggers
Click the trendline trigger buttons to create alerts to execute trades, or notify you, when the price rises above or falls below a trendline you have drawn on the chart. The trendline trigger buttons are only displayed after a trendline has been selected by clicking on it.
Threshold Triggers.png Rising / Falling Threshold Triggers
Click the rising/falling threshold trigger buttons to create alerts to execute trades, or notify you, when the price or technical indicator rises above a particular value
(eg the price rises above $5 or the RSI falls below 30)
Percentage Change Triggers.png Percentage Change Triggers
Click the percentage change trigger buttons to create alerts to execute trades, or notify you, a price or technical indicator values changes by a defined percentage
(eg the price decreases by 5% within a specified time period)
Break Out Trigger.png Break-out / Pull-back Triggers
Click the breakout/pullback trigger buttons to create alerts to execute trades, or notify you, when a price or technical indicator value increases by a specified amount
(for example the stochastic increases by 5 points)
Cross Over Triggers.png Cross Over Triggers
Click the cross over trigger buttons to create alerts to execute trades, or notify you, when either two technical indicators cross (eg a MACD crossover) or when price crosses a technical indicator
(eg the price crosses over the 50 day moving average)
Above Below Triggers.png Is Above / Is Below Threshold Triggers
Click the Is Above / Is Below trigger buttons to create alerts to execute trades, or notify you, when the price or technical indicator is above or below a particular value - these triggers are generally used in conjunction with other triggers to create a multi-condition alert setup
(eg the RSI is below 30 AND the price crosses below the 30 day moving average)


To create your alert, simply click on the appropriate trigger button whose change in conditions you wish to be alerted about.


For example, if you are creating a price alert, use the trigger buttons located in the bottom left corner of the price chart. If you are creating a MACD alert, use the trigger buttons located in the MACD chart. If you are creating a Stochastic alert, use the trigger buttons located in the Stochastic chart, etc.


Some triggers require you to input values in the relevant text boxes which will appear as a pop out on the chart.


After clicking on a trigger button, the alert conditions will appear in the "Alert Builder" widget - to the right hand side of the chart, where you can further edit and customise the alert to suit. We will look at some examples in the following tutorials.
