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.

How It Works

InvestAlert will notify you by email or text message when important things happen.

Common Strategies

There are virtually endless ways you can use InvestAlert to buy lower and sell higher. With so many markets and types of alerts, everyone from the most casual investor to institutional professionals can gain an edge. To help get started, review the following strategies our members use to gain their edge on Wall Street:

Tool shield

The Shield

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.

Tool tower

The Lookout

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.

Tool stopwatch

The Timekeeper

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.

Tool funnel

The Funnel

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.

Tool gears

The Machine

Geared towards investors whose decisions account for everything, this diversified approach sets alerts on stocks, funds, precious metals, and currencies to stay on top of markets and economic indicators.

Tool idea

The Vanguard

Some innovative investors come up with novel or creative approaches that just plain work. We will soon be rolling out features to highlight these approaches and creative members, so we're excited for where you will lead us with your ideas.
