Setting Up Forex Price Alerts In MetaTrader 4

Alot of times, maybe due to work or school or the kids, traders tend to miss that perfect set-up price, that particular price which they have been aiming for an entry or exit from the market, It might even be a case of wanting to know when the market reaches a certain price because of your trailing stops. Unless in a case where the trader decides to seat with his PC or Mobile 24/5, the trader will surely tend to miss those price which he/she has been waiting for.

The programmers at Metaquotes took these in mind and created “ALERTS” for PC MT4/MT5 and “Push Notification” for Mobile MT4/MT5.
