TradeStops makes it simple for self-directed investors to understand and manage investment risk.
As the internet’s premier destination for stock tracking and alerting, our array of available alerts allow you to be notified as soon as the time is right to make a change.
Alerts are the heart of the TradeStops program. Your alerts are what you set on each position to tell you stop prices. In other words, the alert tells you a price of when to take action.
Alerts can be used to know when to exit a trade, as well as letting you know of good entry opportunities. Alerts can also let you know when corporate actions occur, for example, when stock dividends, splits and spin-offs take place. You create alerts that look for information important to you, and we will let you know when that criteria has been met.
If you synchronize with your brokerage, TradeStops can automatically create alerts for you.
- VQ alerts for Basic members.
- SSI alerts for Plus, Premium, and Lifetime members.
If you don’t want to use one of these alert types, you can disable automatic alert creation within your Settings (click here).
You can always add more alerts to your positions. Adding alerts manually allows you to access all of the alert types within TradeStops.
