Alert Software Question

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by Lapdance Jockey, Dec 12, 2005.

  1. Hello,

    Just a quick newbie question -

    Is there any software out there that will alert you to when any company on the NYSE/NASDAQ falls/gains above/below a certain percentage? (and not ones that you already have on your list, but new companies that are either falling or gaining on the day)

    Example - Company's XYZ/ABC/TGIF just fell below 10% - 20% - 30% etc etc..
    and - if there is - do they make it Mac Compatible?

    I know E-trade lets you sort them by biggest gainer/loser but its delayed 15 minutes - I haven't check out the Pro version so maybe something like this is offered there. Again, just feeling my way around

    Many thanks!
  2. I don't know of any that are Mac compatable. The problem is the majority of customers are Windows based, so we write to that platform. Unfortunately, it is a re-write to adapt to Apple, so most alert platforms will not expend the time and resources necessary to do that to a small audience. I wish it was easier!
