Alerting Service

Building a data-driven alert distribution system with text, iOS/Android push support, and email notifications isn't easy. Work smarter, not harder with our market data alerts.

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.

Choose Delivery

Set a delivery mechanism that works best for you. We support alerts via email, SMS messages, or your web service via HTTP POST.

Real-Time Alerts

Barchart’s Alert Service will continuously monitor your alert conditions. Once your conditions are met, notifications are immediately delivered.

Trusted Security

Keep contact information for your users private. There is no need to share contact information with Barchart.

Conditional Alerts

Scale your alerting capabilities and provide a rich user experience with support for multiple alerting conditions (if, and, then). No kidding.

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.

Will Barchart have access to our users data?

Barchart stores the alert conditions you configure. However, you can avoid sharing any identifying information regarding your users.
