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.

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.

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

    • Is this the right place to leave feedback to the tech team? to others in the community, do you know what I am talking about?
    • I have tried to clarify the US share dealing charges with a live chat operative, and they were unable to communicate in a meaningful way. I would like to confirm that, as long as you trade at least 3 times in any given month, that you will only pay charges for the first month. In other words, free US share dealing is on a rolling monthly basis provided you continue to make at least 3 trades every month. Is this correct? The operative was saying that even if you trade at least 3 times every month, that only every alternate month would allow free commission. She also said this was clearly stated on the fees page, which is most definitely not the case. In addition, are the quarterly fees definitely waived if you place these 3 trades within a quarter? Thanks
