What are Watchlist Alerts?

Watchlist alerts are notifications that are triggered when a specific event occurs related to a stock that has been added to a watchlist. A watchlist is a list of stocks that a trader or investor wants to monitor.

For example, if a stock trader adds a certain stock to their watchlist, they can create a watchlist alert to receive an email notification when the stock closes above or below a target price.

Our watchlist alerts are delivered via email at the end-of-day, or after the market closes for the day. Swing traders and investors use our alerts to assist with their trade management and monitoring.
