IĎll be simulated trading for quite some time, so Iím not at the stage where I want to fork out for real time data and run it through a program like Amibroker to generate alerts.
I would have thought there would be some website out there with a facility to set price alerts for various pairs and then sound an alarm via Java or something. Alternatively a small desktop utility which has a data feed. However I havenít managed to find anything like that.
I know of one site that will email you an alert for free when a pair hitís a certain price, but I donít really want to be hitting my mail server every minute checking for an email which may come once a day.
