Email alerts help


You can use our alerts service to keep in touch with price movements, news stories and changes to your portfolio. Alerts will be sent to you via email either as soon as they are triggered or, as in the case of portfolio valuation summaries, at the end of each trading day.

How to set alerts

Price target alert

To set a Price target alert simply select the share you want to set an alert for, then select the field (e.g. price, mid, bid or offer), then select if you want to be alerted to a price rise or a price fall, and finally the exact figure at which you want the alert to be triggered e.g. 360p then click on “Set alert”.   A Price target alert is a one-off alert, but can be re-set by going to the Alerts- History page (see Monitoring your alerts).   Note that all data is at least 15 minutes delayed.  

Price change alert

A Price Change Alert can be set to alert you to movements in a company’s share price.  All you need to do is select the share you wish to set an alert for, select the percentage rise or fall and then click on “Set alert”. This acts as a useful “early-warning” system to alert you to any unusual price movements as soon as they happen.   A Price Change Alert is a one-off alert, but can be re-set by going to the Alerts-History page (see Monitoring your alerts).   Please note that all data is at least 15 minutes delayed.  

Portfolio target alert

The Portfolio target alert will notify you about changes to your portfolio(s), so you know when the value of your portfolio rises or falls to a pre-determined level. Simply select the portfolio you want to be alerted on, choose Rises above or Falls below, enter the value and then click on “Set alert”.  

A Portfolio target alert is a one-off alert, but can be re-set by going to the Alerts- History page (see Monitoring your alerts).   The Portfolio valuation summary can be used to send a daily summary of how your portfolio(s) have performed – it will show the total value of each portfolio as well as the change in the value for the day.  

A Portfolio valuation summary is a recurring alert that will continue to be sent unless you go to the Alerts - Current page and delete or suspend the alert (see Monitoring your alerts).  

Monitoring your alerts

You can see all the current alerts that you have set up by going to the Alerts – Current page. From this page you can suspend alerts, useful if, for example, you are away on holiday and don’t want to return to a full-mail box, or you can delete alerts that you no longer require.  

Once an alert has been triggered it will appear on the Alerts – History page.

If it’s a one-off alert such as a Price target alert, a Price change alert  or a Portfolio target alert, you can then reset the alert if you want to be notified when the selected criteria is triggered again.  

Changing the email address where alerts are sent

To change the email address we send your alerts to, go to the My account section and see My Account help.
