PortfolioTrader Email Alerts

Postby FutureTrader » 16 Feb 2015

I'm missing the possibilty to have email alerts when running PortfolioTrader, or haven't I found it yet?
So there is no notification possibility when a new buy/sell trigger occurs in the strategy.

Is there a PowerLanguage/EasyLanguage possibility to code email alerts directly into the strategy and using something like sendmail?

Hi there,

I asked pretty much the exact same question a couple of weeks ago:
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=47943

I am currently working on some Perl code that looks at the audit.xml files created by TWS and then sends out emails. I will share that code shortly.


Cheers, Felix

Thanks for the information.
It's way more easy to get the executions under TWS. You can auto export the execution file. go in TWS in the global configuration -> at the top under configuration -> Export Trade Reports.
This file can be monitored.

thanks for the hint. I looked at the files and found the information in the audit trail more complete. Parsing XML is easy in Perl.

Has anyone been able to send email alerts on Vistalink? I can send a test email and have checked the tick box to enable email for the alarm I need, but no go. What Im I missing?
