email alerts

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was looking over the alerts section and was surprised to see no notifications with the alert-to-email option. I do wonder if this would be possible through the Medved API somehow? For example as soon as the scanner brings up a result then it pings a notification to the api and then I could use a secondary source to send the email notification? I am not seeing how this would be possible currently.

It's on our todo list and we will work on this soon. Main problem is that most people do not have a good SMTP server to send email through, or don't know how to set one up, and renting one for this purpose is a bit expensive for us for the volume of emails that is possible. We're resolving this issue. May limit the # of emails sent from a non-subscribed account, for example.

Okay that sounds great, your platform is the only solution I've found to get customize-able indicator alerts for crypto exchanges, so alert-to-email would be really useful.

I have been a big fan of QuoteTracker even before the Ameritrade acquisition.  There is limited support for crypto in the marketplace, and I'm very happy to discover through BitcoinTalk that you guys are taking this step forward.

Regarding email alerts, if users have a Gmail account (and for those who don't, they should get one), they can send email through their Gmail accounts with Google's SMTP servers for free.  There is a lot of resources online to show people how this can be done.  Like this one to enter Gmail SMTP info into any email app

Simply adding these email configuration settings to Medvedtrader should be quick and easy.
