Alerts Guide

Alerts is available as a premium service on chartink.com . They notify you via  SMS/Email when any stocks filter thru the screeners that you specify. In this guide we’ll go thru the basic steps required to create & manager alerts

Creating & CONFIGURE alert

Open any screener for which you’d like to create a alert for and click on the “Create Alert” button.

A new dialog box would open wherein you can customize(see image below) the below options:

  1. How often to run this alert?
    – You can configure to run alerts every 5/10/15/20/30/60/120/240 minutes & on daily, weekly or monthly basis. Alerts can also be configured to run after market close & open. Read our FAQ on more details on when alerts are run.
  2. How to notify you for this alert(email, sms)?
    – Alert notifications can be sent over Email or SMS or both. We provide you with 2000 credits(1000 sms & 1000 email) for alert notifications. Creating alerts for screeners that filter many stocks throughout the day may fill your email/sms inbox and exhaust your credits. We recommend you track the notifications for the alerts you have configured for optimal usage of notification credits.
  3. When to alert you?
    – You may want to be alerted when the count of stocks that meet the screener is greater than 0 or 1 or 2…
  4. Action after the alert.
    – You could continue the alert after the trigger is met or pause it.
