Timing is a crucial component in the success or failure of a traders’ day. Timing is vital to stay abreast of all the pertinent information that may affect your favourite trading instruments. Luckily, TradingView’s Alert function has you covered in this respect.
In this guide, we will explore some of the ways that TradingView’s alert function can aid timely decision making.
Alerts are available to TradingView members with free or paid accounts. However, the number of alerts allowed is significantly higher for paid accounts. You will find that only one alert is allowed with TradingView’s free Basic account. Whereas, Essential, Plus, and Premium have 20, 100, and 400 alerts, respectively.
