The Price Alert widget notifies users if a selected instrument reaches or passes an inputted target price. The widget is intended primarily for brokers, as well as traders that are dealing with broker markets.
With Price Alert, users can work on other tasks but still be notified if an instrument of interest reaches a designated target price. Once they receive an alert, users can then contact a client for guidance, manually place a relevant order, or otherwise take appropriate action.
Note that this widget cannot place trades based on the alerts. All trades must be completed manually by the user.
