Enabling or disabling smart alerts

Smart alert notifications are automatically sent to you based on securities you currently hold in your account and/or are monitoring in your watch lists. They allow you to easily stay on top of market events based on pre-defined criteria such as high volume, a new 52 week high, or a percent change against the previous day's close.

To enable smart alerts: 

  1. Click File > User preferences. The user preferences window appears.

  2. Select the Alerts tab and click Smart.

  3. Then select the Receive smart alerts checkbox and click OK.

Note: you can disable smart alerts in one of two ways:  

  • Toggle off the Receive smart alerts checkbox in IQ Edge. 

  • Click one of the unsubscribe links at the bottom of the smart alerts email. You need to log in using your user ID and password to confirm your selection.
