Rate, Price and Volatility Notifications
For example, the volatility notifications uses parameters related to the degree of change that occurs within a certain time frame, including 3, 10 and 30 minute intervals, based on custom values. The idea was for traders to be able to sense when the market conditions change, such as when a support or resistance level is validated or breaches, and when the resulting volatility increases the speed of the price movement.
GMO explained in the press release that the signal notification function provided push notifications to users based on the strategy they’ve chosen, including the ability to choose from a list of strategies, while returning the cumulative profit or less for each one.
The rate notification was described like an alert where the notification is pushed once the price level is reached, and the update explained how the app allows for up to thirty different rate notifications to be set up.
