How to Use InvestaWatcher for Real-Time Stock Price and News Alerts

If you are working full time, becoming a trader is quite a challenge.

Do you consistently fail to sell at your set stop-loss because you were doing something outside the market? Have you missed on your reversal and bounce plays many times already? Are you always not able to catch up with the latest news and disclosures?

Most part-time stock traders in the country don’t have the luxury to monitor their positions while they are working on their day jobs. On the other hand, students who also trade stocks need most of their attention directed at their subjects and professors while the market is open. People on vacation also share the same difficulty as they can’t have their eyes glued on their phones or monitors during market hours. Because of these reasons, we might miss out rapid changes that take place during the opening hours of the market.

Every second counts for us traders and having an alert system for stocks will help us save time and money as this will allow us to respond to any price movements as they happen real-time. Given that almost all stockbrokers in the country do not feature stop-loss orders, this would be a godsend to those traders who are dealing with cutting prices or stop-losses. We need not to stare at the glaring screens of our electronic gadgets every minute just to be able to catch up with price movements.

That’s where the InvestaWatcher comes in.

As a trader, we know the amount of effort we put in our trading plans. But a well-baked trading plan won’t necessarily grant us the reward we’re looking for, execution serves as a bridge between our trading plan and the market. Actually getting in the swing and the huge moves of the stock we want to trade in the most precise way is tougher than creating a trade plan, given outside variables that might affect the way we execute our trades.

We might be patting ourselves in the back when the stock we made a trading plan for actually went upwards. But our goal in the market is to make money consistently. With the InvestaWatcher, our executions will be better, more efficient, and precise.
