How To Set A Condition Alert

Alerts can be set on price points, trendlines, EasyScans, indicator conditions and even as reminders. There are pop-up and audio alerts within the software. Alert email and text messages are also available. (Alerts are available in all levels of service as follows: 5 simultaneously monitored alerts in Silver; 100 simultaneously monitored alerts in Gold; unlimited simultaneously monitored alerts in Platinum.) Note: delayed data also means delayed alerts. Real-time data provides real-time alerts.
