Trade Alert Report Enhancements

  1. Trade Alert Status Updates:  Each Trade Alert now displays Alert Status in the Trade Alert Report, including when the Trade Alert is active, when the target is reached, and when the Trade Alert is no longer active. The Alert Status displays 'Active' when issued, and automatically updates to 'Target Reached' or 'Expired' as appropriate. The Alert Report designates in the new 'Status Change' column the date and time of the status change. These changes will only affect Alert Status for Trade Alerts issued after the v3.8 Release Date.
