The History Feature enables you to analyze the alerts of your Alert Windows over the past 60 odd days.
By default, alerts will be streaming in real-time, however, you can uncheck the real-time mode, if you wish to look further back.
You can select to view the alerts of the Last Trading Day or the Previous Trading Day.
Alternatively, you can select All to see all the alerts of the past 60 odd trading days.
The window will load a maximum of 1000 alerts at once, to see older alerts, select More from the dropdown. You can keep selecting More until the 60-day trading limit is reached.
You can also request historical alerts for a specific Timeframe. Start describes the most recent alerts that you want to see. By default, these appear at the top of the alert window. You can choose Now as the Start Date, or you can choose a specific Date and Time.
Below you can choose the oldest alert that you would like to see. You can make a selection from the dropdown, which starts this morning and ends 64 days ago. Alternatively, you can choose a specific date and time.
Press the OK button and you will see the Window will fill with historical alerts. The caption of the Alert Window will be updated to show that historical data is currently displayed and that more historical data is available.
You can request additional portions of historical data via right-click, History, and More.
If you click on an alert to display it in a linked chart, you will see a blue arrow pointing at the bar where the alert occurred.
You can sort the output by specific columns. If I would like to, for example, see the highest-priced stocks at the top, double click on the price column.
This will bring up a menu with group and sort options. If a symbol shows up multiple times in your scan, you can leave it as such by selecting, All Alerts. You can, however, also choose to limit the output to the very first alert for the symbol, by choosing Keep Oldest, or the very last alert by choosing, Keep Newest.
Additionally, you can select which filter to sort by and the sort direction, either ascending or descending.
To save all the displayed data of the Alert Window as a CSV file on your PC, right-click and select Save Contents.
