Alerts are a great way to stay on top of emerging trends and potential breakouts. They can also be used to warn of reversals and moves to the downside. Once a stock is on your radar, pull up a chart and then set an alert using levels which you believe are important or that indicate a significant move could be close at hand. You will be notified when the alert is triggered by the market and then you can proceed with decisive action if you desire.
