HOW to get Email alerts without pc on all the time

Hey guys i use NT8 with email to text alerts, obviously they don't work without the pc being on, but i want them for trades that are out by days or weeks, so the pc isn't running 24/7

any suggestions on how else it can be done would be appreciated

Possible a cloud computing machine. I cannot think of any other solution.

Tradingview.com does offline alerts. with a free account you cant do many of them. You can set it up with a your cellphone MMS email where the email will go straight to your phone. they do have a 10min delay on futures data unless you have a CQG feed on your account.

Hope that helps.

data feed from another?

I use NT7 for charting and IB for the trading. You can have IB send an alert to you by text email or both. However im my experience IB is alerts are NOT reliable. SO this would be for time or price alerts - not indicator alerts.

Some computer has to be on to send the alerts, whether yours, a cloud based, or your own.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

Well, the simplest thing would be to keep the PC running 24/7. If you don't want to, the question I have is simply, why not? True, there will be some wear and tear on the mechanical parts of the machine (hard drive and fan), and probably it would not last quite as long overall, but (a) PC's are quite cheap today, and can be replaced every few years, and (b) in the past, in offices where I maintained software, I have had PC's running continually for years on end with no issues. If you do data backups frequently, and especially if you have a solid-state drive instead of a mechanical hard drive, the computer will run 24/7 reliably until well after the point when you really ought to replace it.

Since you don't want to do that, the other solution is to hire space on a VPS (Virtual Private Server), which gives you a remote "virtual" PC in a providing company's server installation, and you can run your trading software from that. This is "cloud computing," which simply means "over the internet" -- It's sort of become a marketing term lately. You would be able to have remote access to the machine, so you could actually operate it from your home PC when you needed to, and it could be set to send out any alerts you wished. You would need to install a second copy of your trading software, because in effect it would be a second PC.

It would run 24/7, but your home PC would not have to. In fact, the remote installation would probably be more reliable than your main PC, because the provider would manage power and internet connection. However, it would cost you some money and would add one more thing to care about in your life.

You could, in fact, do your trading by remote access to that computer and not even use your home PC. I understand there may be some degree of lag due to the transit time over the internet, though. These setups are often used for purely automated trading.

To be honest, this all seems like far more bother and expense than it's worth, just to get some alerts.

You would need to look into a reliable provider. I have no direct knowledge to offer on that. (I would just leave my PC on all the time, but we already went over that. )

There is certainly an answer to what you are looking for. Either of these two solutions might give you what you want.

Bob.

off platform email alerts

Hi all
thanks for the replies
currently do run the pc all day but i was hoping for a list of web based chart providers like barchart.com etc etc that have that as a PAID service, so i was investigating who's using what, now that i think of it i could have been more specific but didn't want to influence the replies,
now that i think of it, i thought i heard MT5 does that without having the platform running as it's a web based platform,,,

regards Angelo
safe trading
(hope someone is catching the huge swings)

thanks Bob good to know

You are welcome. Are you using MT5 for futures, or just Forex?

Thanks
