Indicator alerts activating only once despite being set to 'Every time this occurs'


JonW

Question

I have set an indicator alert, 30 day exponential moving average on a daily chart,  to 'Immediate' and 'Every time this occurs' (even tried 'Once') but the notification alert only activates once. I've tested with the mid market price being above the indicator for an alert and as well as crosses (for both ways) but once it has activated, it doesn't want to alert me again. I've looked on the chart and the last triggered and I've noticed in some cases it should have activated on several days. E.g. on South 32 Ltd, the alert last activated on 1/11/2018 but should have also activated on 2/11/2018 as it is set to 'crosses'. Another example is Central Asia Metals PLC, activated on 31/10/2018 but from what I can see from the chart as well as mouse over, it should have also activated on 01/11/2018 and 02/11/2018. I also saw the same with Anglo American last week but as I've redone the alerts again just to be sure, I'm not sure when it last activated but the same issue still occurred. 

Am I missing something? Any advice is hugely welcomed as I am stumped.

 

Thanks

Hi JonW ,

Did you ever get this working at all ?

I have a similar problem which that I accidentally set a whole bunch of my alerts me = once , when really I wanted to set it to  alert me every time this occurs . Do you know if there is a way to do this on bulk at all  ?

Thanks !

Yes. After creating the first alert with "alert me every time this occurs", on my next new alert, I would then change it back to "once" and then back to "alert me every time this occurs", effectively refreshing the selection. However, from what I can see on the CFD platform, not sure about the Sharedealing, it now resets all settings if selecting a new stock. If you are on the same stock but creating another alert, this technique worked for me.

    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
    • I played around with it (created two plots of the smallest viable K-32 size). While I'm farming this tiny amount now I've stopped plotting until pooling is introduced - since existing plots aren't going to be compatible with pooling. The cost of wearing out SSDs is high. You're effectively buying (via SSD wear) lottery tickets (the plots) with a chance of winning a lottery (by farming). Without pooling its unlikely small players will win. The "estimated time to win" is based on current network space that will probably rise at a very quick rate reducing your chance of winning exponentially.  Unless you're farming petabytes, using the rule of large numbers to take out the lottery element, its not worth the time of smaller farmers imho. It may be worthwhile when they introduce pooling.
    • Yeah, you can trade whenever you want.
