ALERT! The New Alerts Workbench is Here!

Yesterday, we launched an exciting update to our Technical Alert Workbench! Just like the other site improvements we've rolled out this year, the new Alert Workbench is faster, more user friendly and fully scalable across all device sizes. Whether you're on your laptop at home or your smartphone on the go, creating customs alerts in your StockCharts account has never been easier.

If you're unfamiliar with our Custom Alerts feature, here's the scoop. StockCharts Members can create custom technical alerts with their own unique criteria, and automatically receive notifications via email, text or the SharpCharts Workbench whenever they trigger. If you're waiting for a good entry point on a new stock or want to stay ahead of the curve when an important sell signal executes, this is a feature you can't afford to miss!

If you're not yet a StockCharts Member, this is a great example of a powerful feature that you're missing out on! Start your FREE 1-month trial today, and explore everything that StockCharts Membership has to offer.

Lastly...keep an eye out for another big "alerts-related" announcement in the next ChartWatchers Newsletter. Even more exciting things are coming soon!

Introducing Livestream for MarketWatchers LIVE!

Earlier this month, our MarketWatchers LIVE web show saw some big changes. We moved to a new live video streaming technology called Livestream (the same platform we used to host last year's ChartCon!) As part of this change, the show can now be watched directly from No software to download or applications to open. All you need is a web browser and a good bowl of popcorn!

As part of our new video streaming platform, all MarketWatchers LIVE shows are now recorded and saved for later viewing. You can watch and re-watch the show as often as you please, whenever you want. Plus, the Livestream video player has a built-in DVR function that allows you to rewind and re-watch any part of the broadcast during the live show. If you missed something that Tom said or want to review Erin's last chart, all you have to do is scrub back in time on the Livesteam player. Easy!

MarketWatchers LIVE airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 12:00pm ET. To re-watch the last show or catch our next presentation, CLICK HERE.
