The History Feature allows you to analyze the alerts of your Multi-Strategy 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 All to see past alerts or 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 Multi-Strategy Window will be updated to show that historical data is currently displayed and that more historical data is available.
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.
Please note, that the window will load a maximum of 1000 alerts and the past alerts will be split up by the number of strategies. If your Multi-Strategy Window contains 20 strategies, you will see about 50 past alerts for each strategy.
To fully analyze the historical output of a strategy, isolate the strategy and run the history of the individual Alert Window. To do so, right-click into the Multi-Strategy Window, select Strategies, then the specific Strategy, and choose Open Alert Window. To use the History Feature within an Alert Window, right-click and select History.
