Everyone has a different way of investing. Some are long-term holders, some locate the best short-term opportunities and others do a bit of both. Regardless of your methods, it can be interesting to keep track of the performance of your crypto assets without the need of compulsively checking the market all the time. This is why we have launched Price Alerts!
On the SwissBorg app, price notifications can be defined and sent directly to your phone as a “push” (in-app) notification when your price point is reached. The notification message will contain information about the token, the target price reached, and an action button that will direct you to the asset exchange screen. You are also able to customise your alerts with a special message, create multiple alerts and add them to any token in the Marketplace. Note that these alerts are not designed to work as conditional orders (limit or stop) as they do not allow you to automatically take profits or limit losses.
How do I set up a price alert?
Setting up a price alert is quick and easy! Simply follow these steps:
Go to the Marketplace screen in the SwissBorg app;
Tap on the crypto asset you’d like to set the price alert;
Tap on the bell icon in the top right corner of the token screen. This will either take you to the alerts list screen, if you already have one or more price alerts set up for this token, or to the price alert creation screen if no price alerts are set up yet;
In the price alert creation screen, set the price for the alert by either typing in a price, or by moving the bar of the percentage scale left or right. If desired, you can also add a note to your alerts to remind you of the purpose of the alert (for example “Buy” or “Sell”). The quote currency is automatically set to the display currency you have selected for the app, but can be changed by tapping on the currency icon displayed in the top right corner of the screen and selecting a different currency from the list.
Once you’ve set the price for the alert, simply tap on the green circle with a checkmark to complete the process and you’re all done! Once the token price hits the amount that you’ve set, you’ll receive a notification in the app.
If one or more price alerts are set up for a certain crypto asset, the bell icon will appear in green with a transparent lightning bolt in it.
Before being able to receive notifications from price alerts, make sure you have notifications enabled on your phone. You will be able to set this up in one simple step when creating your first alert.
Once you have created one or more alerts, the system will check the current price of the token every 30 seconds. If the price reached or passed your price alert level, a push-notification is sent to your phone immediately, and will also be available in the notifications area in the Portfolio screen in the app.
The note define on the alert is visible in the in-app notification.
Tapping on the notifications will take you to the crypto asset screen, so you can perform the actions you had planned when setting up the alert. The triggered alert is automatically removed from the list.
If you want to remove a price alert, simply open the Alerts List screen and swipe left on the alert, then select “Remove”. You will be prompted with a pop-up confirmation, and you’re done!
