Hi @razrtrader

There are several possibilities. One I used for recognizing my (complicated) pattern "Walzer"* was with IRT from Linnsoft. When a alert came up the software sent a message. In my case to a German provider - sending me then a detailed phone alert instantly. So I had 10 to 15 minutes time to check the pattern and to decide whether to take the trade or not.
Quite a setup - but once running it was smooth and reliable as silk.
In my case the trading station had to be running on automate - the message on the phone was upon the software signal/alert from there...
I think for a simple price alert you might run your tws on the phone - giving you a message when true.

Good trades!
