A common problem with automated trading systems is that when they open a position usually the trader is unaware of this event, now with the trade notifier, you can configure it so that it will send instant messages about a position opening or closing as soon as it happens. The message will contain everything a trader needs to understand what kind of trade opened including the position size as well as the profit and loss of a closing trade.
Type of Notifications
- When any position opens for a selected symbol.
- When any position closes for a selected symbol.
- When a position opens that belong to a particular trading robot.
- When a position closes that belong to a particular trading robot.
How to send notifications to a trading robot?
This is mainly designed for our customers who are using our trading systems, there is a setting called instance name, and this value must be the same as the value that is on the trading robot, nearly all the trading robots we offer have this setting in the robot. If you wish to use this in your own trading robots, just make sure that when a position opens the label of the position is the instance name.
Broadcast Trade Signals to a Telegram Group
Another use of this robot is to broadcast trade information to a telegram group, this can be in the form of a trader manually creating an order or an automated trading system.
Make sure that the symbol selected is for the symbol that you wish to receive notifications.
Option to only send alerts for a particular symbol or all for all the symbols being traded. If this setting is set to YES then you only need 1 cBot instance that will manage all symbols traded and if it is set to NO it will only manage the symbol for the cBot instance.
If you leave the instance name field empty then you will receive notifications for all positions for the chosen symbol.
If you choose an instance name that matches an automated trading systems instance name with the same symbol then you will receive notifications only for the automated trading system with the same symbol.
