Setting Indicator alerts


Recommended Posts

When trading FX I want to set an alert than informs me whenever the 5 day EMA crosses the 10 day MA. But I seem to only be able to set alerts for EMA crossing EMA or MA crossing MA.

Can anyone give me information as to how I can rectify this or is it something IG is unable to provide with their indicators?

Hi @CostaCarta

To create a new price or indicator alert, open a deal ticket for the market you’d like to trade and click on the ‘alert’ tab (1), which you’ll find at the top of the ticket next to the ‘deal’ and ‘order’ tabs.

Under the ‘alert’ tab, choose which type of alert (price change, price level, or indicator alert) you want to create (2). Enter the required information (3) and then click on the ‘set alert’ button (4) to complete the process (you may need to scroll down to find it).

Setting price and indicators alerts

You can track and manage your alerts from the ‘alerts’ section in the left-hand navigation menu (1) or from the ‘alerts’ window in your workspace.

Price change and indicator alerts remain active until you delete them. Price level alerts, on the other hand, remain active only until they’re triggered, after which they cannot be modified or reactivated.
