To assist traders in managing their strategies and the right time to execute or unwind a position, the alerts function in RiskVal is very useful. The alert functions have been revamped to streamline and unify the alerts whether it is from the Sprd/Bfly or the Forward Swap Matrix.
From both the Forward Swap Matrix or the Sprd/Bfly, to open the Alerts Menu, click on “Tools” - “Manage Alerts”.
In this week’s release, all alerts will autosave. Additionally, settings are shared between the Forward Swap Matrix and the Sprd/Bfly, any changes made from one window, will propagate to the other window.
Click the “Show Config” button to manage alert details.
From: The time frame for the alerts to be active
Notifications: This section allows the user to choose the method of notifications
Enable / Disable: Trade must enable extra notifications.
Email: Email address to which to send the alert to
Batch Interval (Min): How often to send the e-mails to the specified address
Desktop Notification: Enables the notification on the main desktop on the bottom right corner
Desktop Pop up: Shows the interactive pop up at the center of the workbook
Settings: Choose how to be alerted when the strategy crosses the high/low boundary.
Delay Alert (Min): How many minutes must the position stay in the boundary before the alert is triggered; this is to avoid getting many alerts due to swings in the market. I.e. The position must stay in the triggered position for about 10 minutes if set to 10.
Blink Alert Row (Sec): The number of seconds the row must flash as it is triggered
Highlight Alert Row: Once the Alert is triggered, highlight the row and keep it highlighted until the trader acknowledges it
