Forex Club Asia SMS Alerts Now Available!!!

Hi All!

I’ve been testing this service for a few weeks now (thanks to our fellow member Fitz Vilafuerte) and it is working quite well except that there can be delays of up to 10 minutes sometimes.

So for those who want to get notified of my posts, live trades, unlitrades, week ahead forecasts, etc. by SMS please do the following:

.

1.) Go to http://ifttt.com and join for free. Please take the time to understand the simple concept of “action” and “triggers”. After you’ve understood, please configure your ifttt account properly by placing your mobile phone number, etc. Ifttt currently does not recognize Yahoo based emails so you will need to use a Gmail account. If you do not have a Gmail account, then please create one then follow steps 2 and 3 below.

.

2.) Once you are configured, you may click this link: https://ifttt.com/recipes/58110 this is the “recipe” (action and trigger template) to use to get SMS alerts from me and Forex Club Asia

.
This service is completely free. Please go ahead and configure this now.
.
3.) Additionally, if you do not have a gmail account and will have to create one, please make sure to re-register the new email to receive notifications from me here: http://forms.aweber.com/form/50/260670550.htm
.
The IFTTT account will not work if you do not do this last step.

If there are problems please just comment on this post.

Monsterpips to All!

      1. Oh, I think using another email won’t work since the trigger used would be the notification sent to our email (the one registered in forexclubasia.com). Am I correct, Mark?

  1. this is way too cool. thanks mark and fitz.

    now ang assignment… how to configure. hmmm.

    mark, when you send out forex alerts i receive 2 emails in my email address.

    one is from markso@forexclubmanila.com and another is from donotreply@wordpress.com.

    in all markso@forexclubmanila.com alerts, the emails tell me only this… that there is a new post, written on what date and that i should log in forexclubasia.com to read your new update whether it be unlitrade or not.

    whereas in donotreply@wordpress.com, i immediately see on screen your picture profile and the actual forex alert message including the screenshots.

    my question now is, can i use both addresses in making my ifttt recipes and will it work?
    mobilephone in use is iPhone 4.

    tulog tuloy ba ang usage mo of wordpress service.

    1. Hi Gina, yes Forex Club Asia will continue that service from WordPress. The notifications will be sent via SMS of either Globe or Smart or Sun through Ifttt to a gmail account, so as long as your phone can receive SMS then the procedure and whatever recipes you create should work.

  2. Do I have to create a new account for this? I tried using my present email add but it doesn’t accept – email add and username has been taken is the prompt reply – does it mean I need to use other email add different from my present one? Thanks ..

    1. If you have a gmail account already then please use that, and follow steps 1 to 2 above. if you do not have a Gmail account, then yes please create a new one. And also follow step 3 of my post (also above)

  3. This is AWESOME!! However im trying to activate sms… still i havent receive my PIN. I tried it for more than 5x. Im a globe user…Anyone of you experience the same issue? Please help.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Jeff, Did you use this format to register your celnum: 0063917*******?
      I register my sun number this way: 0063922*******.
      (* fill-in your mobile number)

  4. Great job Gian. You’ll see if it works tomorrow when I issue my week ahead forecast. Just make sure that your gmail is already registered at forexclubasia in step 3 above. If you are then it should work with no problems.

    1. I’ve been hearing similar problems from other members. Unfortunately there might be a problem with new subscriptions with IFTTT and there is only so much I can do, so kindly go here to ask for support from IFTTT directly https://ifttt.com/help thanks! Just for everybody’s info, my Globe number is able to accept SMS notifications.

      1. I was able to reroute the action to my gtalk account instead, now able to receive forecast on my mobile(Using Blackberry Social).:)
        Great app!:)
        Thanks Mark.

  5. hi everyone…have anyone know how to work this problem,i already try many times,but still not send me the pin… i use Globe…i already try 0063906**** ,0906****,+6906***.but still not send the pin…plzzz help me with the sms alert…hehe thanks… ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Erwin, yes, IFTTT is no longer working, unfortunately we do not yet have another substitute for that so in the meantime the notifications are via email and facebook for now. Apologies for that.
