Can I receive emails from MT5 for certain market movements?

Yes, you can certainly do that.

To make your MT5 send an email for certain market movements, you need to go to the “Alert Editor” in the “Alert” tab as below.

In the popup window above, please select “Mail” from the drop-down menu of “Action” field. (otherwise the notification by “Sound” will only make noises on the platform)

*You can also select “File” to perform certain actions written by your program, or “Notification” to send push notification to your mobile device through the mobile version of MT5 on your device.

After setting up the parameters, you will need to write the format of the notification email as below.

You can insert various macros into the text using “Macros” command of the context menu, such as:

Symbol — the name of the financial symbol the alert is configured for
Bid — bid price
Bid High — the highest Bid price for the chart period (for exchange instruments)
Bid Low — the lowest Bid price for the chart period (for exchange instruments)
Ask — ask price
Ask High — the highest Ask price for the chart period (for exchange instruments)
Ask Low — the lowest Ask price for the chart period (for exchange instruments)

*There are many more commands available.
