Breakouts - Setting Alerts & Trading/Investing Advice?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I have 2 major questions really. I want to invest probably long term in potentially superperfomance stocks. having read several books investing in the trend follwoing breakouts from consolidation can be a great strategy.

1. Does anyone have any tips for finding and trading/investing in these shares without paying for breakout alerts form other sites?

2. Is it possible to set alerts for many stocks at once on IG around this? Could be when the 150 day EMA crosses over the 200 day EMA for example.

I'm sure there's a tutorial from IG on this, but in the meantime

Thanks Elle. Much appreciated, yes i do alerts for individual stocks , it'll just take a long time to set a few thousand. But yes thanks for the advice i have found a few stock screeners which actually include technicals too...

You can set alerts on  any instrument on the IG platform.   Go to Alerts pick whatever share or other instrument and then choose whatever criteria you wanted to be alerted. (Please follow the instructions  - which is very simple).  Once your criteria has been met the IG software will alert you by text or email.

    • Volume profile, depth of market, orderbook, VWAP, VPVR, VPSV... all the basic things needed which for some reason are disabled.. seems odd that you don't want your clients to see this information? Even FXCM, OANDA, Pepperstone, ICmarkets, FXPRO & many more not listed all allow you to see this and have access to this vital information. ProRealTime v11.. It's about 2 years overdue now... frustrating not only having out of date features but more so when trying to back test things as it's limited on v10.3 to a maximum of 100k units.. that means with every day passing, I lose a day's worth of data.. PRT v11 allows you to have 1m unit backtest.. Also.. Custom, multiple take profits.. allow me to set a desired amount, for example.. ** points or **% at 10 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 20 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 30 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 40 pips away from entry.. Have a look at cTrader.. they do a perfect example of this, in advanced take profit section.
