How do I get an Instant Trade Alert via SMS text or Twitter?
If you do not want to download our Wanderer Financial App, you can still receive Trade Alerts instantly through twitter. Here are two SIMPLE options for receiving notifications using Twitter's SMS service.
Option 1. As a Twitter subscriber with the Twitter App on your phone. (This is the most reliable.)
If you are already a Twitter subscriber and want to take full advantage of Twitter's functionality, all you have to do is follow Wanderer Financial on Twitter and enable notifications from us. It's pretty simple!
Search for wandererfinance from within Twitter and follow us. Once you're following us, click on the little notifications symbol (as seen in the picture on the left.) Choose "All Tweets".
That's it. You're all set. For complete instructions on enabling notifications for iOS and Android devices click this link.
NOTE: If you are not yet a Twitter subscriber and do not have the app on your phone, then it's still pretty easy.
- Download the Twitter app to your phone. - Open the app and sign up for a free account. - Search for "wandererfinance or Wanderer Financial" and click to follow us. - Once you're following us, click on the little notifications symbol (as seen in the picture above on the left.) Choose "All Tweets". Now you will receive an instant notification on your home screen anytime we post a twitter update. You do NOT need to have your app open, nor do you even need to open the app to check the tweet. You also do not need to rely on text message delivery to receive notifications.

***** This service relies on text messaging through cell towers, and when traffic is heavy on a network, alerts may be delayed in their delivery. Twitter says the following: "If you’re experiencing a delay receiving Twitter SMS text message updates to your phone, this is most often due to heavy traffic on your carrier's network. This issue usually resolves itself after a while." If this happens to you, consider using the mobile app and enabling notifications.
