  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Alerts for Block Trades


I'm trying to figure if there is a way to set alerts for certain size blocks. I understand that "Last Size" will work. But, I'm trying to figure out how to actually set alerts.

I realize that I can do it with a scan. However, I believe that as soon as a particular stock sells in a block that doesn't meet my criteria, that symbol will disappear from the watchlist.

It doesn't appear that I can set an alert either. They seem to only work for a particular symbol. I want an alert when any stock sells for a block size of larger than 100,000.

I'm trying to use this to find some pre-market movers. I've seen a way to set this alert in E-Trade Pro, but I don't see how to do it in ThinkorSwim.

Thanks in advance!
