Trade Watch


Introducing Trade Watch – a must-have enhancement for any trader. Trade Watch will alert you whenever the Opened Positions or Closed Positions table are updated with new entries.

Do you want to be emailed every time you make a trade? Tired of creating new instances of the built-in Watch Trade signal every time you make a trade? If so, then Trade Watch is for you. You only need to create one instance of this signal and it will watch all trade activity!

Want to only send alerts for a particular symbol or trades opened and closed on a specific account, no problem! Not interested in Opened trades and only want alerts for Closed trades – no problem! Trade Watch allows you to easily configure any of these options.

It does not matter how the trade is opened or closed – you manually, via an automated strategy, or closed via a stop or limit order – Trade Watch will know and it will let you know within seconds.
