You won’t miss out on any investment opportunities when you use the ‘Alert’ feature. You can track a specific stock or index by setting a trading alert that is triggered by a specific price or company announcement.

Hi I’m Jessica Amir with Bell Direct.

Today we’re going to cover setting up alert screens, so you can take advantage of opportunities as they present themselves in the market.

After you’ve logged into your account, you can access alerts anywhere on the site using the alerts icon.

When you get to the alert screen, you’ll see all your existing alerts that you may have already set up.

But today, let’s create a new alert.

Key in the stock code and choose a price, or news alert or both.

For example, let’s set an alert for a price change for CBA.

If the price reaches or rises above $70 or reduces below $55 then we’ll be alerted.

You can also set an alert to receive market sensitive ASX announcements on a stock.

Now to receive the alerts, they’re either via email which is free or by SMS which carries a charge of $0.55.

Then click ‘Save’ and your alert has been created.

You will now have that alert that you set up with the others in your list of alerts.

After an alert has been triggered, you can also reset that alert back to square one or edit the price triggers by clicking the ‘edit alert’ button.

You can also delete an alert by clicking the cross button.

Now you can also set an alert for an index, say the benchmark ASX200, setting a prompt for when it reaches above a certain level or to get an alert for a certain time throughout the day.

Now remember you can choose how you want to be notified as well.

Click ‘Save’ and you’re done.

So now you’ll see your new alerts in your alert screen and that’s it!

So with Bell Direct, keeping on top of markets is simple, quick and easy.
