real time alerts sent to phone

Does anyone know of an app to download so I can send real time alerts to my phone when a price hits. An app that sends an alert like an alarm or something similar without having to open an account.

IB allows you to send a real-time alert to your phone and or email.
However, I found it was unreliable.

IB has a phone version of its trading platform- which I have not used and that might work.

The message to your phone is done my the software running at your brokerage.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

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!

* The Walzer (DAX future) you can read in my still up and running journal here:

Sierra Charts has an sms, email, and voice alert generator built in. You pay a small fee per sms, email, and voice alert. The alerts can be very complex (i.e. your special set up occurring) and the software can scan many instruments based on your alert critieria. The software needs to be running for this functionality to work.

Thinkorswim does it. I used to get txt messages and email, but now since I have the mobile app I still get email but on the phone I get app notifications instead of txt messages, which is fine with me. I think you can configure it to still send txt msg if you really want it. also has server alerts, for a price. I paid $80/yr for Pro. The free version might do alerts if the web page is running in your browser in the free version, can't remember now.

You can do it with Ninjatrader with custom code...

I do this with NT8 no problem sending each time a tweet to a twitter acct only for my NT8 alerts, an email and a text message....... there's no way I can miss

I can set up these Alerts while at my machine or often I do it remotely from my iPhone with free Teamviewer or my paid Splashtop apps.


It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.
