Price alerts

Price alerts are smart notifications that help you track price movements for stock, ETF, and crypto assets that you hold or want to watch.

For all the assets that you hold or watch, you can set up price movement alerts and other related notices in the app.

You can also set up custom price alerts for a specific stock or ETF through its chart in the app.

Default price alerts

You should start receiving price alerts for any stock you hold if you’ve enabled notifications in the app. Price alerts for assets on your watchlists are disabled by default, but you can turn them on from your notification settings in the app.

You can also disable or further customize these price alerts any time from your notification settings.

Price movement alerts

The price movement alert options in the app are 5% (default) and 10%. You’ll get an alert for each asset you own or watch based on the price threshold chosen. With the 5% threshold, you’ll get alerts for 5% and 10% price movements. If you choose the 10% threshold, you’ll only get alerts when an asset you own or watch has hit a 10% price movement.
