I upgraded to 6.4 and find that Alerts appear (as normal) in the Strategy Monitor at the end of the day when the Stategies are run, but not the next morning when the program is re-opened.It is as if WL cleans out the Strategy Monitor for Alerts after it has been closed. To obtain Alerts in the morning I now need to "Run this Strategy now" for each strategy (which is tedious). Is this a feature of 6.4? am I missing some action ?

thx
for what it's worth I'd put in the suggestion-box that Alerts continue to show in the Monitor until the Strategy's next run

There is a discussion going on right now, but the rationale is that clearing stale alerts when the SM starts up is important to avoid confusion.

Without any way to easily store and retrieve alerts inside the SM, the only way to re-populate the list is to run the strategies all over again. It is incomprehensible to me why somebody even thought of making this design change.

Bottom line: The alerts should be stored and available in the SM, like it has been since WL.NET rolled out. Period.

The S. Monitor Alert loading is coming back in the 6.4 patch, which could be released as early as next week.
