InvestAlert makes it easy for you to know when future possibilities become reality so you can seize the moment. It only takes a few minutes to set up your portfolios and watchlists, add assets, and activate alerts to help you buy lower and sell higher.
Tutorial: How to Create an Alert
How It Works
InvestAlert will notify you by email or text message when important things happen.
- Create Portfolios to monitor assets you own and Watchlists to track assets you want to buy. InvestAlert has access to over 17,000 stocks, funds, precious metals, and global currencies.
- Set one or many alerts on assets to know when prices rise, fall, or on certain dates. InvestAlert tracks daily closing prices to avoid intraday volatility while still staying on top of indicators and trends.
- Relax knowing your assets are monitored every day by alerts such as Trailing Stops, Breakout Watches, Price Movements, Profit and Loss Monitors, Date Watches, and Countdowns.

The most common tool investors use to know if profits and losses reach a level worth knowing. Alerts are typically set around 25%, giving enough breathing room for common ups and downs while still guarding against major losses and letting profits grow to meaningful levels.
Similar to The Shield, but it focuses on assets you want to own instead of ones you already have. Typically, investors who use this strategy set profit, loss, and date alerts on several different assets and seize buying opportunities as they become available.
By focusing on specific dates in the future such as expected product launches or tax deadlines, it serves as the ultimate reminder and returns the time you would otherwise spend monitoring assets or the news.
Most popular among investors with many ideas to buy and sell because it involves setting multiple alerts, either with different values or different types altogether, and waiting for the first one to trigger.
