We offer a mobile trade alert service. We have many trading set ups that are "set and forget" as they are high probability trades. A high probability trade is defined as one that has a 70% or higher historical probability of being a winning trade.

Many of these trades can be entered on or after 6 pm if you are unable to enter a trade while at work. NADEX has a mobile application to place these trades directly from your smart phone. These trades are alerted out well in advance of the trade so you will be aware of them in advance.

For alerts that have less than 1 hours to EXP, if there is no fill by the bottom of the hour then cancel order. For End of Day alerts, if not filled by mid-day, then cancel order.
