How much do Alerts cost?


This is a free service for BMO InvestorLine clients. However, please be aware that your wireless service provider may charge you for receiving emails on your mobile device. Please consult your wireless carrier's customer agreement or contact them for details.

Are the stock quotes real-time or delayed?


The actual delivery of alerts to your device is dependent on the time it takes to travel over the Internet and/or wireless networks. This time may vary depending on the carrier or Internet service provider you use.

How can I receive stock and news alerts?


Once you have completed your Alerts set-up, you can receive alerts on any device that is capable of receiving emails. This includes email-enabled PCS (digital) cell phones, text pagers or personal digital assistants (PDA) and desktop computers. If you don't want alerts sent to a wireless device, you can have them sent to your regular email address.


To receive wireless alerts on your mobile phone, pager or PDA, you need to ensure that your device is capable of receiving email messages. Then, you need to have your wireless Internet or text messaging service activated by your wireless carrier. They will provide you with an email address for your mobile device.

Can this service replace my other sources of stock and news information?


No. The Alerts service is designed to be a convenient tool that enhances your overall investing strategy. Sign into your account to consult detailed market information available through our web site. BMO InvestorLine's Alerts service is provided by Reuters Limited. All quote information provided through our Alerts service is delayed by 20 minutes.
