Initial Alerts setup

A Push alert is a real time alert telling you that something important has just happened, or is about to happen. Push alerts will be sent to your phone even if it’s locked. You can choose loud (plays a loud alarm), soft (a quieter less obtrusive sound ), or silent where no sound plays but you’ll still see a Push alert on your phone.

All push alerts take you to the relevant screen in the app if you swipe them to the right:

Price push alerts take you to the relevant chart.

Economic data or news push alerts take you to ‘My Feed’.

5 minute warning push alerts take you to the Calendar.

You can choose exactly how to be updated based on information type and importance – Push Alerts on/off, and a selection of sounds. For instance for economic data you may want just a Quiet Push alert if values are within market expectations (Within Consensus), but a Loud Push if consensus is missed.

Go to Settings to view the default alert settings, and change them if you want:

Different types of Push alerts

Economic Data Alerts

Five minutes before an economic data announcement, you will receive a 5 minute warning according to your settings. You can set different sounds according to how important the event is, or whether or not to receive 5 minute warnings at all.

When you get a 5 minute warning push, you can swipe the alert to the right to be taken straight to the calendar. The next up events will be at the top of the screen and flashing. If you want, you can lock your phone and go about your business – as there will be another push when the announcements happen.

 

 

Economic Data alerts happen in real time as the announcement is made, and contain the Pre, Cons, and the Actual figures. You’ll be alerted differently according to whether the announced is within market expectations (AKA Consensus) or not.

If the announcement misses consensus, you’ll get a ‘Market Shock‘ push alert, which may play a loud sound if you’ve configured the app to do that.

Swipe the push notification and you’ll be taken straight to all the results in my feed. You’ll see the results are sorted onto green/red (whether they are seen as positive or negative news) and any that have missed consensus will be marked as a Market Shock.

Geopolitical News and Technical Commentary Alerts

We also cover speeches, interviews or press conferences as well as technical commentary and signals. Sometimes there will be a potentially market moving news headline, which our newsdesk will set as a Market Shock. You’ll get a loud alert if you have set News Market Shock to do so, and the news update will have a Market Shock flag in My Feed.

Price Alerts

You can set multiple Price Alert levels (details in the next section). When your previously set Price level is hit, you’ll recieve a push alert according to your settings. If you swipe the Push alert to the right you’ll be taken straight to the live chart for that pair.

Interactive Charts

On the chart screen you can choose from a range of technical indicators, and a 6 or 36 hour view with 10 minute or 1 hour candlesticks. The live price line will be shown in blue. If you want to set a Price Alert all you need to do is drag your finger along the ‘Tap+Drag’ area to the left of the chart. You’ll see your alert level line moving with your finger. Once you’ve got the level you want, release your finger, and that’s it, your Price Alert is set. You can see some price alert levels have already been set in the screenshot above.

TIP: Tap+hold anywhere on the chart to scroll it up+down – this is handy if you want to set an alert level that’s offscreen.

Economic Calendar

The calendar shows the day’s important events – economic data announcements as well as Press conferences, speeches and other important announcements. An events importance is denoted by the colour of the dot: Low importance, Medium importance, High importance. You can go back and forwards several weeks by tapping the left+right arrows. As mentioned in the alerts section you will also be taken straight to the calendar screen if you swipe a 5 minute warning push to the right.

This screen shows events that have already happened, as their Actual value (the value of the live announcement) is displayed in the boxes. Red means below consensus, Green means above the lowest figure of the consensus range (so for instance if consensus is 3 – 7, and the Actual figure is 3 or above it’ll be Green, below 3 it’ll be Red. A grey box just means no consensus was provided.

Bringing it all together – My Feed

The My Feed screen collates all your price, economic data and news updates in a newsfeed format.

My Feed is a live newsfeed where you can view all your updates – News, Economic Data, Price alerts and Technical Commentary – all in one place. You can scroll back to see all the updates from the previous 24 hours. You’ll notice that economic data announcements are coloured according to whether they were positive news or not, and price alerts are Red if below an alert threshold, Green if above. You’ll also see which announcements were Market Shock which is denoted by the blue Market Shock tabs. This is particularly useful if several economic data events come in at the same time and you want to quickly see which is good or bad news, and which missed consensus.

As mentioned before, if you swipe an economic data or news push alert you’ll be taken straight to My Feed, where you will see the full details.

TIP: If you tap on a Price Alert in My feed, it’ll take you to the chart for that pair.

In-App popups

If you’re in any screen of the app and a new update comes in, you don’t need to go to My Feed to view it, as it will just appear on whatever screen you’re in as a popup. This is particularly useful when you know there could be a big market reaction during a scheduled event, for instance a key Economic Data release or an important speech – as you can view the updates and the live chart on the same screen.
