With price alerts you will be sent a push notification on your mobile device (or an email if you are not logged in to your Luno mobile app) whenever the Bitcoin price crosses a price level of your choice.
Creating a price alert
To create a price alert, go to:
MENU → PRICE ALERTS
To add an alert, tap on the BELL (+) icon.
Choose to receive an alert:
Once-off, which deactivates itself once you have been alerted
Every time, which alerts you each time the Bitcoin price crosses the selected level. Note: There is a 5 minute cooldown period for “every time” alerts.
When the price crosses the level you’ve selected, you will be sent a push notification or an email if you are not logged in to your Luno mobile app. Push notifications look like this:
How price alerts work
Example: you add an alert to notify you, every time, the price of Bitcoin is more than ZAR 1000.
Price movement 1 will trigger your alert
Price movement 2 will NOT trigger your alert. Add another alert to be notified when the price of one Bitcoin is less than 1000 to be notified in this case.
Price movement 3 will trigger your alert. Create a once-off alert if you only wish to be notified once.
Price movements 4 and 5 will NOT trigger your alert. The price must cross your alert level in the relevant direction to trigger alerts.
