Volume Alerts

Stock alerts and forex alerts.png

timetotrade can be used to create Volume Alerts that will execute trades, or notify you, by mobile phone or email when your volume chart conditions are met. You can create alerts that will execute trades if the volume rises above a level or falls a level; combine volume if other indicators such as RSI or price crossing a moving average for volume lead trading strategies. After creating your alerts, you can then 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™.


If you're away from your computer, timetotrade will watch the markets for you. As soon as your alert conditions are met this will trigger an email or SMS text alert to be sent to your pc or mobile phone.


Create and customise your own alerts against over 100+ technical indicators. Or create alerts for custom indicators. Simple, intuitive "point and click" system - no programming required.


You can even build compound multi-condition alerts which will be triggered if a series of events occurs, for example you could create an alert on a stock that will trigger if: the MACD rises above zero and then crosses over; or the stochastic rises above 80 and the MACD falls below the smoothed MACD; or the RSI of a stock was to fall below 70, followed by a price pull back and a stochastic crossover.


timetotrade watches the markets, so you don't have to. Use timetotrade to avoid missing trading opportunities, regardless of how busy you are ...and when it's time to trade we'll let you know!


Share vs Forex Volume

The volume figure on shares relates to the number of shares that are transacted over a given period of time. With regards to Forex the size of the transactions are not known, therefore the volume represents the number of bid / ask top of book ticks i.e. the level of activity within a given interval.


Volume Alerts

To create an alert, go to the Charts page, and enter the ticker symbol for the stock or currency pair you wish to use. This will take you to the alert creation page. Once you have set up a timetotrade account you can use the chart settings to add the Volume indicator.

Volume Alert Creation 1.png



Create Alert on Volume Surge

The Volume Alert "Rising Threshold" Trigger can be used to create an alert to execute trades, or notify you, of volume surges and the "Falling Threshold" Trigger can be used to execute trades, or notify you, of a drop off on trading volumes. For example from reviewing the following Oracle minute interval chart, the surge in volume when the market opened on Tuesday the 24th correlated with a drop in the price:

You can use the Alert Threshold Triggers to create an alert to execute trades, or notify you, when these conditions are met in the future. For example, to create an alert that will execute a trade when there is another volume spike, click on the 'Rising Threshold' trigger, then enter a value such as 100000 as illustrated.

Then create a message to remind yourself why you created the alert and that is it. Activate the alert and the next time there is a volume surge, you will be notified by email or SMS:

The other alert triggers such as the "% Breakout" and "% Pullback" Triggers can be used to create an alert to execute trades, or notify you, when the volume increases or decreases by a given percentage within the selected chart interval period. These triggers can be used to execute trades, or notify you, when there is a sudden surge or drop in volume; e.g. you can use Percentage Breakout volume trigger to execute a trade if there is a volume surge greater than 10% within a 15 minute interval.


More information on how to use the timetotrade system to create Volume Alerts can be found on the Create Trading Alert page.


Multi-Condition Alerts

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.


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, volume and multiple technical indicators; for example: you could set up rule that will trigger an alert to be sent to you if there is a surge in volume plus a drop in the price as illustrated:

You can also edit the alert message you will receive and you can specify where particular alerts are to be sent - to your email and/or mobile phone or PDA.

Check Alert Triggers at Interval Close or on Each Tick During the Interval

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:
