Mobile Trading Assistant

The Mobile Trading Assistant comprises a group of notifications that are controlled separately and that proactively notify you when user-specified market, account, positions and order execution thresholds are crossed. Notifications occur in real time, and can be sent via email or text. Notifications include:

  • Market notifications - Sends a notification if the daily change percent exceeds the bounds you define for a specific instrument. Threshold boundaries can be set between -5% and 5%. i.e. “SPX up 2.5% (1,470.50)”
  • Account notifications - Receive an alert when the margin cushion or Daily P&L exceeds the user-specified boundary. i.e. “Margin Cushion Below 5%”
  • Position notifications - Sends an alert if the percent change of any of your positions exceeds the user-specified boundaries. i.e. “AAPL: Long 200 position up 3% (650.37)”
  • Trade notifications - Sends an alert when an order fills, i.e. “SOLD 500 AAPL @ 650.37”

To activate the Mobile Trading Assistant notifications, from the Main Menu select Mobile Trading Assistant, and use the sliders on each category to enable or disable the notification. Specify the boundary limits as needed.
