Trade Notifications #

Turn on trade notifications using Trade Notifications button to always stay informed about operations on your account. The information is delivered in push notifications from the broker's server and thus you can receive it even when the app is not running.

Depending on the settings provided by the broker with whom the selected account is opened, notifications may include information about orders, deals, deposits, and withdrawals. The broker can disable notifications completely, in which case the option will not be available.

Notifications are enabled separately for each account; the setting is saved on the server. If you use multiple mobile devices, notifications will be sent to the one that was last connected to your account.
