In Kraken Terminal you can set alerts for price, volume levels or special technical analysis (TA) alerts. 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. TA alerts let you know when the asset price has interacted with a key indicator. But most importantly, they let you unglue your eyes from the charts for a while.
You can set alerts by using the alerts menu in the utility bar (on the far-right side of the terminal), 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" or the + button in the top-right of the Alerts panel opens the alerts editor where you can choose:
- whether the alert is for price, volume or TA
- the parameters defining when the alert will trigger
- what is triggered by the alert — Kraken Terminal clients can choose browser and sound alerts
TA alerts tip: Open the Analysis menu and use the parameters found in the "Inputs" tab of your chosen indicator to help you fill out the alert editor.
Once an alert is set you may adjust or delete it from the Alerts button in the utility belt, located in the far-right side of the interface. Click the alert to open the alert window again, where you can adjust its parameters. Use the Delete 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.
