Market alerts: Stop Loss, Take Profit, Low Price

Market alerts warn you when a fixing is strongly recommended on the day of the alert.

When do I receive market alerts?
How can I be informed that there is a market alert?
What is recommended to do in case of market alerts?


You receive an alert when an important event in the market calls for making some fixings on the day of the alert. These fixing advices are valid for just one day.

In the application, Take Profit and Stop Loss alerts talk about the dynamics of the wholesale market because it takes into consideration the prices provided by the suppliers to their customers. They do not refer to the prices as a good enough price or as the price over which you don't want to go.

A. Stop Loss Alert

You receive a Stop Loss Alert when:

  • Prices of the forward products have increased by a significant percentage over the last weeks on the wholesale market.
  • There is a risk that the prices could continue to rise.

B. Take Profit Alert

You receive a Take Profit Alert when:

  • Prices of the forward products have decreased by a significant percentage over the last weeks on the wholesale market.
  •  On analysing the recent past, there is a market opportunity based on the analysis of the trends in the recent past.

C. Low Price Alert

You receive a Low Price Alert when:

  • Prices of the forward products are at a historical low level compared to their prices in the past months and the forecasts indicate an increase in the coming weeks.
  • There is a market opportunity based on the analysis of the trends in the distant past.

  2. When the duration for the alert ends

    At the end of the day, every trace of the alert disappears except in the history of the optimisations for which you received the alert. It helps you to check what Alert fixings were recommended on a given day


Because the risk management strategies help to minimize the risk by not concentrating all the fixings in a very short period, the application freezes the system of alerts for several weeks once it has been activated.
