In Kraken Terminal you can set alerts for price and volume levels. When an alert triggers, the alerts menu opens, flashes and a sound plays to get your attention.
Price alerts can let you know if a key support or resistance level has been broken. High volume levels can indicate legitimate reversals. But most importantly, they let you unglue your eyes from the charts for a while.
You can set alerts by using the alerts menu, or by clicking at the desired price or volume level on the y-axis. By default, alerts will snap to round numbers on the y-axis, though this can be disabled by either holding the Alt/Option key or toggled off in the chart settings menu.
Clicking "Create Alert" opens a window over the chart where you can choose:
- whether the alert is for price or volume
- the price/volume level that triggers the alert
- what is triggered by the alert — Kraken Terminal users can choose browser and sound alerts
Once an alert is set you may adjust or delete it from the Alerts menu, located in the top right corner of the interface. Click the alert to open the alert window again, where you can adjust its parameters. Use the Cancel all button to completely clear your alerts list.
Alerts appear on the y-axis of the price chart, signified by their price or volume level and an arrow. You can also adjust alerts by dragging them up or down the y-axis.
To erase an alert using the chart, hover over it and right-click or control-click, depending on your device.
