How to add alerts on TradingView?

Hey everyone! 👋

Alerts are a key trading tool that every trader should know how to use. Check out this quick guide for more information and some secret tips!

What are alerts?

TradingView alerts are immediate notifications you can set for yourself when the market meets the custom criteria you create. For example, "Alert me if Nifty crosses above 16000". All users can get visual popups, audio signals, email alerts, email-to-SMS alerts, and also PUSH notifications that are sent to their phones. Pro, Pro+, and Premium users can also receive webhook notifications when an alert is triggered.

You can also create alerts on prices, indicators, strategies, and/or drawing tools.

There are 2 ways to create alerts:
1. Using the Right-click
2. Using the vertical scale

Method 1:

This is a pretty straightforward way. Go to the price level at which you want to add the alert, then right-click and select "Add alert". Voila! You are done.

Method 2:

The second way to add alerts is by using the vertical scale (Price scale). If you hover over the vertical scale, you will see a “+” sign.

On clicking this sign, you will be greeted with the “Add alert” option. Just click on it and the alert will be set at the selected price level.

You can also customise your alerts by using alert settings.

Indicator Alerts

You can also set indicator-based alerts with predefined conditions like "crossing up/down", "greater/lesser than", and "entering/exiting channel". You can also create your custom trigger settings by using the alertcondition and alert functions.

Tip: The alerts can be accessed using the “Alerts” tab which is the second option from the top, on the right toolbar.
