Stock Alert Management

StockMarketEye allows you to set alerts on ticker symbols. Currently you can set alerts on 8 different values of a ticker symbol such as Last Price, % Change or even P/E.

Alerts are created for a ticker symbol. If you have the ticker symbol in more than one location (such as in 2 portfolios or in 1 portfolio and a watchlist), the alert applies to the ticker symbol in every location. This helps you stay notified of what’s happening even if you are not focused on one location.

You can create any number of alerts for a ticker symbol. For example, you can create one alert for when the price goes above a certain value and another for when the price goes below a different value.

To create an alert, first select the ticker symbol for which you want to set the alert, then click on the “Alerts” button in the toolbar.

You’ll now see the “Alert Management” window. If you do not yet have any alerts set for this symbol, you will get an empty window as seen below.
