Technical Analysis Alerts

Use TimeToTrade to notify you, or execute trades, when your Price, Candle Stick Patterns, Trend Line, Volume and Technical Analysis chart conditions and chart patterns are met - without having to know how to code.

Create your own price and technical analysis alerts and get an email or SMS text message to your mobile phone the instant your selected investment conditions are met.

Setting up your technical analysis alert triggers is easy. There are no programming languages to learn or complex macros to write. We code so you don't have to. Just click the appropriate Alert Trigger Button on the chart and that is it. Just go to your personal TimeToTrade chart page and click on the Alert Triggers to start building your alerts.

The next time your investment conditions are met, you will be notified by Email or SMS.

You can customise your own Alerts against Price, Candle Stick Patterns, Trend Line, Volume and Technical Analysis chart conditions, with over 100 technical indicators available, plus the ability to write custom indicators without having to know how to code, including:

You can use TimeToTrade to build compound alerts containing multiple trigger conditions against multiple indicators; for example, create a alert that will trigger when the price crosses the moving average if the stochastic is above 80:

Or create custom indicators. The source data for an indicator can be:

  • Open, High, Low or Close price
  • Volume
  • Another Indicator

For example, to create an indicator that is the Exponential Moving Average of the RSI, change the Exponential Moving Average source data field to 'RSI' as illustrated:

Alerts can be set up provide a notification at the end of an interval or if the alert trigger conditions are met during the interval. When creating alerts, 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:
