Article summary

What are Trade Alerts?

The QuantDirection Platform does the hard work of crunching the numbers to reveal the price patterns that repeat with high consistency.
Our Trade Alerts synthesize all of this data and deliver actionable information on the probabilities of expected price moves over certain time periods. All Trade Alerts are sent via email and/or SMS and also are visible as weekly reports visible from your Dashboard.

Trade Alerts have been enhanced in QuantDirection Platform v3.0. Now a default alert package is available with a simple set-up process that takes less than 30 seconds. In addition, there is more actionable information available for each Alert Signal, with trade strategy and specific guidance for Stocks, Options and Futures trades.

Trade Alerts include information on:

At a glance you can see the current price level, what price level the stock is expected to move to, and the timeframe that the move is expected to occur.

Alert Details drill down further to get more details like the price percentage of the move, and its probability, as well as the price levels to enter and exit the trade.

For each Trade Alert you can drill down further to get Trade strategy ideas for either buying & selling the stock, and for credit spreads, and naked calls & puts, and futures, including, the entry and exit prices, and for options the contract strike price and contract length.
