Alerts enable you to monitor securities you're interested in and receive automatic notifications, based on the security's price change, volume change, and 52-week high or low. Alerts will be triggered when customizable conditions and performance criteria have been met. They can also be triggered when orders are executed, cancelled, or rejected. 

You will be able to select from a wide range of notification methods, including emails, SMS (short message service) texts, pop-up messages, audio alerts, or flashing indicators. If you have set up an alert for a symbol, an alert icon will appear next to the symbol in your watch list, as well as the main window or volume area of a chart. You can quickly edit or delete an alert by hovering over the alert icon and selecting from additional options.

Finally, it is also possible to customize the duration of active alerts and whether the alert will be active during pre- or post-market trading hours.
