Notification When Stock Drops a % From Your Buy Price

This is not major but I like it as an additional. A broker I use, sends you an email when your stock dips below 10% to your break-even point. I think it adds a layer of security for those who wish to get out of a position especially when FT don’t have stop-losses yet. But personally I just like to know and it helps me calculate will I average down etc. I usually do, if I bought 10% higher and I liked the stock I usually think its ok to be getting in 10% lower

They only show depreciation per share. Maybe total value and per share value is the way to go

Edit: They do this for 10% but I’ve yet to see a 20% and so on. Every 10% milestone email alert would be what I would be looking for

This would be great and useful tool for managing automatically potential gains and losses. personally I would love to see IFTT (IF This Then That, an app) Integration meaning I can automatically sell/buy shares when they hit a certain threshold. Having some kind of API (application program interface) access means Freetrade can play nicely with other apps I use to manage my finances and investments. I would love to see what the community could do if Freetrade were more open and accessible to developers.


That’s interesting, because the requirement from mifid ii is that the client needs to be notified of a 10% depreciation of their PORTFOLIO value from the last reporting end.

Isn’t this all similar to a stop loss or trailing stop loss?

Setting a stop or limit at a certain price to sell your order?

Na because it doesn’t trigger a sell. Just info

YES, This seems to be an interesting feature;

*etoro has an alert system, which alerts you when a certain share gain or drop on % value. I’m not sure if that applies to etoro portfolio gains/drop.

*T212 has price alert, which can be adjusted to personal preferences. But I’m afraid they also dont offer portfolio gain/drops as of today.
However they offer a slightly different alerts in CFD account which is their USP. (Top Winner/ Losser from their universe)
