    “I can hear something ringing, but I don’t know where it is,” that is what you used to say when hearing a notification sound that you set. If your strategy uses a lot of alerts in different markets, the triggering of the signal may lead to confusion and a quick manual search for the schedule on which the signal is triggered. The “Alerts” button eliminates this annoying inconvenience. This window captures all the information about the signals that have been triggered - where, when.

    A multi-window system has been added, it looks like this:

      1. open any number of charts, smart tapes, DOMs and other tools
      2. drag them on the screen in any desired direction
      3. the program automatically “sticks together” windows into a single workspace
      4. move the bordes between the components of the workspace for more precise adjustment. Save not only space on the screen but also your time and attention.

      To form it this way, drag one window on top of another and you will see a selection element that allows choosing where togluethe window:

        1. The window sticks to the left.
        2. The window sticks to the top.
        3. The window sticks to the right.
        4. The window sticks to the bottom.
        5. The window will overlap the existing one, and tabs for switching will appear at the bottom.
