Alerts: Feature requests


Recommended Posts

Hi,

First post, and in the interest of full disclosure I used to work for IG. I'm now a client. Ok, on with the thread: 

The alerts currently on offer are great. I'd like to use this thread to suggest potential updates and new features, and to invite anyone else to do the same. Some of these should hopefully be quite easy. Others I can imagine as several months of effort

1. For price change alerts, include the current market price in the alert text rather than just the change. Example. I have a 1% in 1 day price change alert on US Crude Oil. When the alert triggers, the message I receive is "Oil - US Crude up 1.01% in 1 day". Change this to something like "Oil - US Crude up 1.01% in 1 day to 2850". Hopefully this one is dirt cheap to implement since the information is already in the system somewhere, so the extra info might just be a variable somewhere in the alert service.

2. Trigger alerts based on time rather than price. Example. Send me the bid/offer of FTSE 100 at 10am each day. Example time frames might be "specific time each day", or "every X hours". This may need the ability to specify a quiet period to prevent 2am alerts... or not.

3. Trigger alerts based on market state change.  Every time a market changes from Open to Closed with Edits or vice versa (8am or 4:30pm for UK shares), send an alert to give the closing/opening level and the new state of the market. This would be particularly useful during high volatility periods when things like limit down happen.

4. Trigger a daily summary alert with a snapshot of account info. In the most simple case, just push P&L each day at a specific time

5. P&L and/or balance based alerts -  Trigger alerts based on specific changes to balance figures. Example. P&L changes from +ve to -ve, or P&L increases above a certain figure, or Account balance (Cash + P&L) crosses a threshold. Would obviously need some kind of throttling if the threshold gets crossed multiple times in short order

6. Customisation of COM alerts: Let users specify the levels of com Based alerts. Current thresholds, if memory servers, are set at 99% and 70% for COM based alerts. Allow me to opt into 150% and 200% alerts, helping avoid panic.

7. Let me set price change alerts on mobile (may already be on Android, but isn't on iOS). 

Number 1 is top of my wish list just because I think it's quick to do. The others - probably needs to be put to some kind of test group to see which gets the most traction.

Cheers

Thank you so much for your feedback. 

I think all of these are great suggestions. I will forward them onto developers and get back to you. 

All the best.

    • In the wake of a brewing conflict between the Nigerian government and Binance, cryptocurrency enthusiasts find themselves on edge, uncertain about the future of their digital investments. Rumors abound that Binance, along with other platforms, might be exacerbating the Naira's devaluation against the dollar, prompting the government to take a hard stance against the exchange. Despite longstanding allegations of wrongdoing, recent events have propelled the government to escalate its actions. The situation has escalated dramatically, with Binance's P2P platform disabled and a staggering $10 billion fine imposed for alleged illegal activities. This punitive measure, coupled with last year's $4.3 billion fine by the SEC, underscores the gravity of the situation. However, skepticism lingers regarding the astronomical sum demanded by the Nigerian government. While Binance has faced regulatory challenges in other jurisdictions, its resilience and market dominance have largely endured. Yet, the potential ramifications of losing access to a key crypto market like Nigeria cannot be ignored. Complicating matters further, the Nigerian House of Representatives has summoned Binance CEO Richard Teng, issuing a seven-day ultimatum for him to address allegations of terrorist financing and money laundering, among other charges. This development casts a shadow over the future prospects of Binance in the country. Amidst the uncertainty surrounding Binance's operations in Nigeria, users are scrambling to identify alternative platforms. While other centralized exchanges (CEX) remain operational within the country, the pressing question remains: which platform will emerge as the most dependable alternative should the situation worsen? https://punchng.com/reps-summon-binance-boss-over-alleged-terrorism-financing/
    • 2024 has been a good year for crypto traders with signs of a bullish market prevailing. For the first time in 3 years, we are witnessing BTC set a new ATH repeatedly. If you endured the prolonged bear market of the previous years, you deserve these gigantic green candles! In addition to BTC's incredible run, several alts have broken out nicely; Ai, memecoin, GameFi projects and so on have spiked. Most notably in the month of February is the run of CEX tokens. According to Foresight News, centralized exchange tokens boast of a widespread price spike in February, based on data from ICO Analytics. Standing tall amongst many is BGB with 62% increase, while ASD, BNB, and KCS witnessed gains of 45%, 33%, and 22% respectively. As a BGB holder myself who’s been holding since June 2023 at an average price of $0.45, it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve witnessed it smash its ATH over again, the latest coming in February when BGB set a new ATH of $1.15. Aside the juicy ROI, BGB usecases have been a flex for me, granting me access to exclusive events, like Launchpads where I’ve also managed mouth-watering gains from my participations. BNB had a remarkable run in the last bull cycle, sadly I missed out having sold mine for peanuts. If you said I’m stoked to right my wrong with BGB this time, you wouldn’t be far from the truth!  Which CEX token(s) are you keenly observing?
