Creating Price Watches

screenshot

Symbol — Enter the ticker symbol for the stock you are interested in watching. Once you enter the ticker symbol, the current price of the stock will display in the Price field.

Low — If you want to be notified if the stock decreases to a specific price threshold, enter it here. (Optional)

High — If you want to be notified if the stock increases to a specific price threshold, enter it here. (Optional)

Low and High boundaries are optional. You may set both, one, or neither.

Create multiple Price Watches for the same symbol to set more than one Low and High price threshold for a single stock.

Understanding your Price Watches

1. Active — When the Price Watch is active this circle will be green and you will receive a notification when your stock reaches the specified "lower" and "upper" thresholds. When the Price Watch is inactive this circle will be red and you will not receive any notifications regarding this stock. All newly created Price Watches are active by default.

2. Price — This is the current price of the stock.

3. Lower/Upper — These are the low and high prices thresholds that you defined. If this stock reaches either of these prices, you will receive an alert as long as your Price Watch is active.

4. SMS alerts — If the cell phone icon is ON, then you will receive a text message to your cell phone number when the Low or High price threshold is reached. You must enter and verify your cell phone number in your profile to receive text messages.

5. E-mail alerts — If the cell phone icon is ON, then you will receive a text message to your cell phone number when the Low or High price threshold is reached. This e-mail address is defined in your profile and can be the same as or different than your log-in e-mail.

6. Delete Button — You can delete a Price Watch from your dashboard at any time by clicking the X button at the far right of each price bar.

Organizing your Price Watches

There are many ways to organize the view of your Price Watches. You can rearrange the column headings by manually dragging a column to a new location. You can also click on the individual column headers to sort your Price Watches by symbol, current stock price, low and high prices. Quote Sentinel will retain your latest view for the next time you log-in.

Modifying Price Watches

To modify your Low or High price thresholds, just click directly on the price.
