i would like to set up an alert to my email or by sms to notify when the signal provider has entered a trade.

when setting up with the signal provider a box was shown that gave option to setup, it was called the options box thru tools on mt4.  it shows a couple options for what might work to send notice that a trade is place.,  one is the "notifications" and next to it is "Email"   i have set up both of them and also have the mt4 app downloaded on my android.

above is a discussion on notifications. I have enabled Push Notifications and Notify of trade transactions in the options box.

will that send notifications to the message box in mt4 on the android ?  i do have the mt4 app installed on the android. 

i am not sure where those notifications show up.  I would prefer an email alert, and have enabled the email alert box on the Tools/options box.

not sure why they request the email SMTP password. i left that out. everything else such as SMTP server i believe is correct. 

so will i receive email when a trade is entered ? 

Has anyone found a way to set this up directly on the android app to message with audible sound and/or text message ?

Thanks.

 Notify of trade transactions in the options box.

Thanks.

These will be sent to the mobile trading terminals either on Android or IOS, given that this is logged on to the (trading) account that has the signal subscription.
