Quantcha Alerts is a notification service that runs in the Quantcha cloud. It monitors a variety of data sources to inform you of important updates as they occur. At this time, alert notifications are sent as emails to the address associated with your Quantcha account.
Alerts are configurable. You can combine a variety of alert conditions, which include timeframes, stock & option properties, and portfolio scenarios, such as likely option assignment, to receive alerts when key opportunities and risks arise.
Alerts are customizable. Every condition allows you to specify parameters that fine-tune the type of notifications you receive and when. You can decide how far out to keep an eye on ex-dividend dates, and at what assignment risk you’d like to be alerted for your short calls.
Alerts are integrated. If you link a brokerage account with Quantcha, you can configure alerts that watch your portfolio for important conditions, such as approaching earnings dates or opportunities to close positions at a desired price.
Each alert is defined by three sets of properties: metadata, conditions, and a post-trigger action.
The metadata of an alert includes its name, description, and whether it’s enabled. The name and description fields are included in the alert notifications. Disabled alerts are never evaluated.
The conditions are a set of one or more scenarios to evaluate, such as a stock price exceeding a minimum threshold. When multiple conditions are defined, they must all evaluate as true for an alert to trigger. This course covers many condition types in depth later on.
The post-trigger action specifies what should happen to an alert after it triggers:
