Alert Expiry

Recommended Posts

Hello, 
Firstly I want to say what an excellent platform IG is, I find it very accessible and intuitive. 

My request is to have Expiry functionality added to Alerts - as is currently available in Orders.
In particular for Alert/Price/Price Level.

"As a User, I want to configure and set an expiry when creating alerts, in order to reduce irrelevant alerts triggering."

Background:
Without an expiry and assuming the symbol continues trading indefinitely, then price will eventually cross the alert even if long beyond the time frame of the intended setup. 

Thank you for your consideration.

Regards
Aleks

Hi Friends, I hope everyone is well. I just wanted to ask how to set up email and text alerts on MT4 please?

Many thanks

Hi, you will need to download the IG mt4 app pack which includes the Alarm Manager;

    • Don't really have a good option right now. Either hold or cut losses. Holding seems like a better option as Nasdaq should not be dropping that much more (hopefully). Cutting my losses now means losing 10 days of earnings. Doesn't sit well with me. What would you guys do if trapped like me?
