A cTrader price alert is a notification that is sent to the trader in the form of an audible sound, pop-up and email when the price of an instrument reaches a set target. Most traders wait until the price of a symbol reaches a specific target before they decide to enter or exit a trade and price alerts are very useful when they are away from the PC or they are looking at other information.
Using the cTrader platform you can configure and manage multiple alerts at the same time and these alerts are displayed on the chart as shown below as a yellow line.
There are various methods to create a price alert and a dialogue box will appear so that it can be configured correctly, there are options to set the trigger using the asking or bidding price of the symbol price as well as the alert condition which can be greater or lower than the price as shown in the image above.
