What are web-hooks?
Web-hooks allow sending POST-requests to specific URL-addresses every time a notification set by you in TradingView is triggered. This feature can be turned on when creating or editing the notifications in TradingView. Add the correct URL-address from the MoonBot settings and once a notification will be triggered, your command will be sent to MoonBot for execution.
This feature is only available for participants of the MoonTrader ICO.

2. From the list on the left, chose “Inbound Rules”. To add a rule, click “New rule” from the panel on the right

You should also change some settings for the Bot to read the tokens from the messages:
1. Check the box “Special filters”.
