FX alerts on Twitter

You can now also get movements of the major currency pairs delivered to your twitter account. The alerts will be in value terms for intraday movements and in percentage terms for year to date movements. For the year to date movements the alert interval is set at 1%. This means that every time a currency pair on a year to date basis is a percent up or down from the previous alert, you will get notified. For the intraday movements I have set the alert intervals to 0.0025, except for the currency combinations with the JPY and HKD where the interval is currently set to 0.25. The following intervals are now available:

fx_alert_us1: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/CHF, USD/CAD
fx_alert_us2: USD/JPY, AUD/USD, USD/HKD, USD/SGD
fx_alert_eur: EUR/USD, GBP/EUR, EUR/CHF, EUR/JPY
fx_alert_gbp: GBP/USD, GBP/EUR, GBP/CHF, GBP/JPY

The intervals may be a little arbitrary, but we will find out if this leads to too many or too few alerts. I hope you will find the service usefull. Please click on the links to follow.
