What You Get with the Free Limited Version
You will get the main dashboard window as shown in the image below giving you important trade information, real-time news events, a single web feed as well as a cTrader memory manager module in the settings tab.
cTrader Alarm Manager Dashboard (FREE)
The dashboard should be able to provide you with all the information at a glance to assist your trading, you do not need to start the alarm monitor to view the information. It includes an account overview as well as trade activity status and the most important piece of information you will need the Drawdown gauge.
Win/Loss ratio is used in calculating the risk/reward ratio. It is not very useful on its own because it does not take into account the monetary value won or lost in each trade. For example, a win/loss ratio of 2:1, means the trader has twice as many winning trades than losing. Sounds good, but if the losing trades have dollar losses three-times as large as the dollar gains of the winning trades, the trader has a losing strategy. The application uses Net Profit/Net Loss in currency to give you an accurate view of what is really happening.
This useful gauge will show your current drawdown of your account, it has a direct relation to how much of your capital you are risking, the higher the drawdown the more you enter the realm of gambling. If your outlook to trading is low risk, then you would be looking at a drawdown of 5% or less.
The maximum value for the gauge can be changed in the settings up-to any value up to 100.
This is shown as a % or monetary value by checking the box on the right.

Instant SMS Messages
If you do not want to use the Telegram Messenger service, then the fastest method of getting informed when an event occurs is to use good old SMS messages straight to your mobile phone wherever you are.
BROKER DATA FEED OR INTERNET CONNECTION LOST
This useful event will occur after the set time in minutes and send you any one of the notifications above. How this works is for the application to check every minute if there is data coming into the platform and if after so many minutes there is no data a notification is sent to you. This will still happen during periods of low volatility, so when you get the notification you will need to re-arm the manager.
CONFIGURABLE MESSAGE AND VOICE ALERTS
The application will allow you to change any of the Alert Messages to your own custom format and language. All Voice Alerts are easily located through the application and are all in English, you can replace these files with your own custom sound files.
"By changing the message and voices you can personalize the application to suit your country of origin."

- Close all open positions at a 17:00 hrs. each day
- When there are 20 losing, trades send an SMS message to your phone
- When there are 10 winning trades close all winning positions
