Powerful Market Data Alerts Delivered as a Service
Define an Alert
Build alert conditions using any data within Barchart's ecosystem. Example: Alert me when $AAPL trades over $500.00 per share.
Set a delivery mechanism that works best for you. We support alerts via email, SMS messages, or your web service via HTTP POST.
Barchart’s Alert Service will continuously monitor your alert conditions. Once your conditions are met, notifications are immediately delivered.
Keep contact information for your users private. There is no need to share contact information with Barchart.
Scale your alerting capabilities and provide a rich user experience with support for multiple alerting conditions (if, and, then). No kidding.
Use as much or as little of our services as you need. If you just need a backend and want to control the front-end yourself that’s great - we’ve got your back.

Market data alerts are generated from our streaming push feed and are created in “real-time.” Note that exchange data distribution policies apply, and the alerts you receive will be configured relative to your applicable exchange license. Either way, they’re timely, and distributed at the same frequency you receive the underlying data.
Any data in Barchart's data ecosystem can be used to create alert conditions.
