In Yahoo stock alerts what is the % decrease or increase based on?
When I use the Yahoo stock alerts, and I enter a % increase or decrease when I want to be alerted, I’m not clear what price they will be using to judge the 10% up or down from… Is this a moving price? Or is it more like a trailing stop type function? Any clarification is much appreciated. Thanks.
I don’t know for sure but logic tells me it has to be based on the price at the time you enter the alert. The dropdown list includes only multiples of 5% which happen very infrequently so I don’t think it’s some type of moving analysis.
For what it’s worth, I simply calculate my price targets based on a % increase/decrease from the current price (or my entry price) and then enter that into the first two fields. That way I know what I am getting.
